How to Improve Sound Quality on Zoom

These days almost everything we do is at home and online. It seems almost every day brings a new Zoom or Google Hangouts meeting. To improve the way we sound on these calls, many of us have bought USB microphones, headsets, or new computers so our friends, family, and colleagues can hear us better. But often these devices aren't plug and play and bad sound is still something we have to deal with.

We will go over some tips and tricks to sound your best on your calls. First, you'll want to make sure that your microphone is at the right level. If you're too quiet your peers won't be able to hear you, but if you're too loud you'll sound distorted in everyone's speakers.

To check your level on a Mac, go to System Preferences, and then Sound. There you'll be able to select the input device (your microphone) and adjust the volume while you talk by looking at the levels meter. Aim for about halfway to three-quarters up. You'll also see a box that says "Use Ambient Noise Reduction". Click this on to improve the clarity of your voice.

On a PC, do this by going to Settings through the Start menu. Navigate to System and then Sound. Click on the Input tab and make sure your mic/headset is connected. Then click on Device Properties (if you don't see this then right-click). Go to the levels tab and adjust your input level accordingly while speaking into your mic.

Lastly, you'll want to make sure you're in an ideal environment, as extraneous noise can make you hard to understand to be bothersome to your friends and peers. This isn't as essential when you're catching up with family, but on those important work calls, be sure to go into a quiet room like an office or a bedroom and close the doors and windows. Also if you're using a microphone, mind your distance from it. Most mics don't require you to be right up to them and you should maintain a fists length distance away.

We reached out to Rich and his team at Computer Geek in July 2021. We were in desperate need of help because our former website design agency left us hanging with major website issues that needed immediate attention. Rich and his team were extremely helpful and quick to come to our rescue! They have helped us with numerous projects that have helped our SEO. Our sales have increased 30% since coming to Computer Geek. We've been working with them for about nine months now and are very pleased with their response time and helpful manner. Rich has proven himself to be trustworthy and dependable. We feel valued as a customer and look forward to continuing a relationship with Computer Geek.

I would certainly like to recommend that anyone pursing maintenance for a website to contact The Computer Geek. I have been using another company to do some maintenance on my site with moderate success. There were issues that were evidently beyond what could be handled by them. However, the professionals at The Computer Geek had them addressed and rectified in no time at all. The Computer Geek approached all of my requests focusing on my goals and the needed performance. Then, once versed, presented me with a very reasonable price. Once the projects were in motion, I found that the tasks were achieved before I expected, with professional results. Also, in one instance where The Computer Geeks brought an issue to my attention that I would have likely overlooked. This was accompanied by a recommendation on how to solve the issue. Overall The Computer Geeks exceeded my expectations!

I have a important website dedicated to the local high school going back nearly 100 years. It was suddenly infected with a virus. Rich at Computer Geek fixed it within an hour. I cannot recommend him enough. I hope it's not for a long time, but the next time I need help, Rich is who I'm gonna call.

We discovered an issue with our Oscommerce cart processing images. It is about 14 years old and heavily modified. Looking on google for some expert help I found Rich and reached out to him. We received a response the same day. The next day his team was working on our issue and was able to solve it within a few hours. Price was reasonable and we are very appreciative to find a competent and professional oscommerce expert to help successfully troubleshoot our issue.

I'm very new to the whole idea of having a website / blog. I used Bluehost.com and WordPress.org to create Thepredatorhunter.com and then managed to wreck it.

In trouble? Stop fretting and start typing in the chat box. You will be glad you did!
