microphone not picking up my voice

All of a sudden when I record my voice to answer a particular question, the response is that it can't hear me. it could hear me yesterday. My mic is fine and I have it switched on in settings. Any clues?

Can be many things. Try recording yourself using a different software first (like Audacity). Does it record? Are you using Windows? What version? What browser?

Did you try recording yourself using a different software? Did it work?

Also, right-click the volume button at the task bar and make sure the microphone is listed under "Recording Devices" and is working (you can see the indication of the volume bar).
