What version of Windows are you using. It is usually easier and more simple to work directly with the Windows volume control to set the source and volume of recordings than with settings in the program. If you are using Windows XP or lower, the following tutorial will give you the information you need to work with the windows volume control.


If you are using Vista, the volume control has changed and you will need a different tutorial or instruction specifically tailored to the Vista Windows volume control.

Subject: [audacity4blind] Volume problems

Hi I have managed to open a file and select my playback and recording prefferences, but I can't find anything to do with the volume. When I am recording it picks up sound coming through my mike, but not through my computer. Does anyone know why this is? I did select my recording and playback devices as the default, so no clue why it isn't working. Many thanks from Lori.
