Troubleshooting Mic, Audio, and Video

 

This troubleshooting article addresses audio and microphone steps when using Orum

As a best practice, we suggest using the Chrome browser.  Please confirm that you are using the latest version prior to attempting the steps below.

Use high-quality, wired headsets. Bluetooth and wireless headsets can cause poor audio quality due to connectivity issues between the device and your system.

 

Microphone Troubleshooting:

1) Please check that audio is enabled for Orum in your browser.

You can click the little Lock icon in your URL bar when on Orum.com:

Additional Troubleshooting Steps For Mac Users:

  1. From the Orum.com tab in your browser, click "log out" in the top right corner.
  2. Close all browser tabs and windows.  (Please make sure browser application stops running completely)
  3. From your Mac's main tool bar on the top, please use the following navigation path to pull up your computer's sound configuration:
    • "Apple Logo" (in the top left of your screen) > System Preferences > Sound
  4. From the new small "Sound" window that comes up, please select the "INPUT" tab in the middle.  Check to see that your headset/microphone device is listed and highlighted.
  5. Open a Google Chrome Incognito Browser window and log in to Orum.  You should now be able to "dial in via browser" and use your headset/microphone device.

Audio Troubleshooting:

1) Refresh the Dial In Browser Connection.  

Orum's Dial In Browser connection can occasionally need to be refreshed.  Please log out of Orum then log back.  This will allow you to reconnect to the Dial In Browser Waiting Room.

2) Incognito Window

In some cases, residual cookies and cache data can get in the way of clear audio connections.  Please start by logging out of Orum and closing the browser tab. 

A simple step to attempt is to click the triple dots in the top of your Chrome browser and open a New Incognito Window

3) Clear Cookies and Cache

Complete the following steps to clear your cookies and cache:

Click the lock icon in the top left corner, and then click site settings.
