Having Trouble with Audio During a Webinar

I am having trouble hearing the presenter during a webinar. What can I do

  • As with any meeting, it is important to test your sound quality and audio settings before your live event. Close all applications and documents you are not using for your presentation; applications running in the background may use up your computer’s bandwidth and affect system performance.
  • If you join the conference by phone, make sure that any other phones and data devices (BlackBerry, iPhone) are either turned off or are away from your computer.
  • Ensure that your earpiece volume is turned up so you can hear the other attendees. If you join with VoIP, we recommend you use a USB headset rather than a microphone/speakers to improve call quality.
  • Make sure your system meets or exceeds the recommended system requirements above.
  • Close additional programs that are open on your computer but not in use. Having open programs will slow your computer’s speed and memory drastically. Exit any programs that require microphone or webcam use to prevent error or conflict when using GoToMeeting.
  • Turn off any streaming media applications that may take up bandwidth and resource-intensive applications that may be taxing processor ability.
  • Be sure to print any documents before joining the meeting, as printing uses a large amount of the computer’s resources.
  • For more ways to optimize your audio please visitIntegrated Audio.
  • If you are still experiencing problems, please follow thislink to other Audio FAQs, or contact support at 1.855.352.9002 or direct dial 1.805.617.7000.

What if I can’t hear other callers

  • Telephone users: Hang up and dial back in.
  • VoIP users: Test your speakers setup. Click Audio Setup in the Audio Pane to select the correct device.
  • Mac users: click the speaker icon in the Audio Pane to select the correct device. Also, check the volume setting in audio setup. Click Speakers Setup and then click Play Sound. Adjust the slider bar to the desired volume.

What if I hear static, beeping or a clicking sound

Electronic devices, such as Blackberries, can affect the sound quality of microphones and speakers. To avoid this, keep any electronic handheld devices away from your microphone and speakers during your meeting.

What if words are clipped or dropped

Dropped words, delays or robotic sounds are often due to poor network performance, lack of memory or high CPU usage.

  • Close all applications you are not using for your presentation.
  • VoIP users: A dial-up Internet connection can cause poor performance. For optimum performance when using VoIP, we recommend a broadband Internet connection. If the problem persists, switch to Telephone mode. Select Use Telephone in the Audio Pane and dial in to the meeting.
