Always "I can't hear you very well" on Mac
I'm using Chrome on a Mac. I've granted DL permission to access the mic, twice—I removed it once and regranted in trying to fix it—made sure the input source is set to internal microphone, and confirmed that my speech is registering normally volume-wise in System Preferences > Sound > Input. No matter how slowly and clearly I speak, DL gives me the "I can't hear you very well. Please record again (try speaking slower)" message. (I see the mic icon Chrome adds to the toolbar when the page is taking input, so I know I'm speaking at the right time.) How can I troubleshoot this?
I know, right! With a phone or earbuds etc it works fine. Probably something to do with the mac + duo interaction, I'd guess.... But I don't get to experience this problem that often, usually it will just tell me to upgrade Flash player and turn off the speaking lessons for me in the mean time :')
I believe I found out what happened. Try going to camera and microphone settings. Increase the recording sound to the max and check "Reduce echo". These work out for me as I don't hear "I can't hear you very well" as often. This should solve the problem. Give it a try. =)
