Symphony Meetings - quality issues

Occasionally, there may be minor quality issues which affect Symphony Meetings. An example of some possible issues and the steps to resolve them, or identify the root cause, can be found below:

 

My audio cannot be heard

  • Does the user have an audio input device? The user interface will display an error message if the user doesn’t have a suitable device and attempts to begin a call.
  • Does the user have the relevant permissions to send audio?
  • Is there a problem on the receiving network side?
  • If some audio is heard but the quality and/or volume is poor, check the user is not speaking too closely into the microphone.
  • Can the microphone level be increased and/or is there a boost setting that could be utilised?
  • Is the correct device selected? Does the Input Level Bar display audio input? If not, change it another device or verify in the systems settings that device is not muted (Figure 1):
