Setting Your Audio Input / Output Devices

About this task

The purpose of this task is to change the selections for playback and recording. Initially, AvayaLive™ Engage chooses the default operating system selections for audio playback and recording. However, you can also specify an audio playback or recording device of your choice.

 

AvayaLive™ Engage displays a dialog box to configure the audio devices of the application.
Note
  • You must be logged into the AvayaLive™ Engage environment before you press F3.

  • While you have the audio configuration dialog box displayed, you cannot move within the AvayaLive™ Engage environment, use the AvayaLive™ Engage chat system or change your mute status. To do any of these things, you must first close the dialog box.

Procedure

  1. To change the default recording or microphone device that AvayaLive™ Engage uses:
    1. Press F3 or click Audio on the top-left of the screen to launch the audio troubleshooting and configuration dialog box.
