Hi Carol,

 

Windows default is fine for those boxes.

 

All the best

Steve, you're right, although I'd seen those audio settings, I hadn't paid
them any attention because Skype had always worked perfectly for me.
However, this has not been the case with the latest version.

 

On looking at this, that check box is already checked.  I'm confused,
because there are about three combo boxes which have two options, one being
Windows Default device and the other C-Media Wave.  What should these be set
to then?

Hi Carol,

 

In Skype Tools, Options, in the Audio Settings, there is a checkbox that
says something like Allow Skype to adjust your audio settings.  Uncheck this
and you'll be OK.  It's been there in all versions, but you just never
noticed it <Smile>.

 

All the best

 

Steve

Have you recently updated Skype to the latest version, by any chance?
(That's Version 3.5.0.202 I think)?  I ask because I've been having problems
with my volume control settings and it seems that they keep going out whilst
on Skype and can't really get to the bottom of it.

 

When you're recording via the mic, my mic volume setting on playback is
muted and in the Recording settings is checked.  That is working for me.

 

HTH:

Subject: [access-uk] Problems setting up microphone

 

Hi guys, 

I'm hoping someone can help me here, I don't know what setting to change.
I've been using a microphone ok, so it's not anything to do with the
hardware itself. Someone has unfortunately changed one of the settings on
this computer, so that, when I speak into the microphone to test it, as the
recording I get JAWS speaking back to me, and the microphone's not working.
The checkbox in volume control by mute microphone is not checked, but it
seems to me that there is some or other setting that's not right, even when
I try and use the echo test, instead of my speech into the Microphone, I
just hear this recording of JAWS repeating what it has said. The Microphone
is plugged into the correct jack, it's actually a sort of headset thing. 

Thanks 

Ari
