If you've enabled Voice over IP audio, as you and participants join the session the Speaker/Microphone Audio Test dialog box will show up automatically. Here, you can see in the Select a speaker to test drop-down list, it defaults to whatever hardware has been installed on this machine. The Test button on the right side of the screen will play a chime to allow the participant to hear that their speakers are indeed working. At the bottom portion of the dialog box, the Microphone display should also show the correct hardware device, and if their audio is working well and their volume is at an appropriate level, a green bar will display showing that the audio level is good.
It's okay for participants to choose the Automatically adjust volume and let the software and hardware work together to set the appropriate setting. Once you're convinced that the audio settings are at a good level, click on OK. An additional dialog box will show up displaying where the participants can control their Volume and Mute and Unmute their audio with this screen. The screen isn't necessary unless participants want to mute themselves immediately. Go ahead and close the dialog box.
Notice in the Participants Panel on the right side of the screen, there is a Headset icon. That indicates that I'm using a headset for this session and the little green bars emanating from that headset show that my audio is indeed working. I can control my microphone On and Off using the button on the far right side of the Participants Panel, to the right of my name. By clicking that button, I toggle my microphone On and Off or Mute and Unmute.
