trouble getting microphone to hear me

Is there some way to get the microphone settings to work? My program keeps saying it cannot hear me and it does this no matter how much volume I use.

Try going into your microphone settings and turning up the sound input volume all the way. Mac instructions and Windows instructions. That was the key detail for me.

Also verify that you don't have anything preventing the mic from working, like browser permissions or a plugin blocker. If you're getting feedback from the mic, this is probably not the case, but worth checking anyway. Also, try to experiment with the placement of your mic and the amount of ambient noise. This might mean tilting your laptop screen if applicable or shutting all the doors to silence your computer room.
