For best quality audio in your recordings:
- Keep the background noise to a minimum. Sometimes just closing a door might be helpful.
- Speak normally, at a non-rushed pace, and enunciate clearly.
- If the speaker does not have a lapel microphone, make sure the speaker is not walking away from the mic.
- Ask the participants to speak clearly into the microphone, refrain from shuffling papers, typing loudly, and 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 listeners/viewers can hear in the recording.
- If necessary, choose an external microphone over a built-in one for better sound quality.
