I do some teaching via Skype. I also use it as a replacement for my office phone (take that Telebec!). Recently, whilst in the middle of a conversation, Skype suddenly couldn’t ‘hear’ me anymore. It was as if my microphone was muted. Calls to the ‘test123′ service confirmed that no sound was being recorded. What good is voip if the outgoing voice doesn’t carry?
In frustration, I worked through all of the literature, the faqs, the help files, every-bleedin’-suggestion I could find. My microphone works fine with voice recorder and audacity; it’s only Skype which has gone deaf. Then, for one glorious moment, for no reason I could discern I was able to call – and they could here me! But it only lasted for one call.
Suggestions? I’ve worked through all of the documentation, and I follow directions fairly well, to no avail: so don’t send me back there…
