Mac users can enable their internal or external microphone on their Mac just by following some steps recommended by Mac Technical Support Team. Below mentioned are the steps to activate Microphone on Mac:
Steps to Activate Microphone on Mac:
Step 1: If you want to use an external microphone then connect it to the Mac by using USB port or Bluetooth or an audio line in port.
Step 2: Then click on the Apple Menu which is in the top-left corner of the screen
Step 3: From the drop-down menu, select “System Preferences”
Step 4: Then, select “Sound” from the right center.
Step 5: Click on “Input” tab which is at the top of the window
Step 6: Then, choose a microphone from the list of available microphones and audio input devices.
- If your Mac has built-in mic then it will be shown as “Internal microphone” in the list
- If your External microphone doesn’t appear on the menu then check your connection
Step 7: change the settings for your selected microphone accordingly. You can use the controls for doing so and move the slider for “Input volume” to the right level so that microphone will be more sensitive to sound.
Step 8: Now test the sound level of the microphone. You can do so by speaking into the microphone and you will get to see if your sound registers are marked “Input level”. In case you see the blue lights when you are speaking, in the input level bar, this means your microphone is activated now.
- Make sure the box next to “Mute” is unchecked which can be seen in the lower right corner of the window
- If the light doesn’t show up in the “Input level” bar when you speak, then you will be required to check the connection of the Microphone and adjust the volume of input accordingly and you are done.
The above-mentioned steps will surely help you in activating a Microphone in your Mac. If the problem still persists or you have any difficulty while performing these steps, you will need right technical assistance on this.
