For Best Quality Audio in Your Recordings
- Keep the background noise to the minimum. Sometimes just closing a door might be helpful.
- Speak at a normal non-rushed pace and enunciate clearly.
- If the speaker does not have a lapel mic make sure the speaker is not walking away from the mic.
- Ask the participants to speak clearly into the microphone, and refrain from shuffling papers, typing loudly, talking among themselves.
- Check where you place the microphone. If your meeting involves many people sitting together sharing the same dial-in, place the microphone near the participants who are talking. If the mic is stationary or not close to the participants, repeat the participant's questions or statements into the mic to be sure everything is heard in the recording.
- If necessary, choose an external microphone over a built-in one for better sound quality.
