The Audio Setup Wizard provides a simple and intuitive way for the audio output and audio input via an attached microphone to be configured. Attendees can request to speak if they have access to both a microphone and headphones.

Step 3 allows the microphone selected in the previous step to be optimally configured.

Click Record and read the suggested sentence into the microphone.

Irrespective of how quiet the surroundings may appear to be a microphone can magnify any almost imperceptible sounds to annoying levels. To alleviate the effect of this Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro can measure the ambient noise levels and take them into account when configuring the optimal settings for an individual system.

Press the Test Silence button and keep as silent as possible during the testing process.
