Using audio in a Zoom meeting requires you to have access to either a microphone through your device or a telephone. Please be aware that the host can control participant audio in a meeting. This means the host can mute and unmute you at any time. Check the icons in the menu bar and the participants panel to determine your current audio setting.
- To unmute yourself and begin talking, click the Unmute button (microphone icon) in the bottom-left corner of the meeting window.
- To mute yourself, click the Mute button (microphone icon). A red slash will appear over the microphone icon indicating that your audio is now off.
- To test your computer microphone and speakers, click the up arrow to the right of the microphone icon and select Audio settings.
NOTE: By clicking the up arrow to the right of the microphone icon, you can find other audio settings like switching speakers (output) and microphones (input). Please refer to Zoom support for further information.
