Zoom Cheat Sheet

I was updating a Zoom cheat sheet I had done for somebody (?), I thought I'd post it here just for further information if anyone is still struggling with the audio settings. I think what I've discovered is that my settings somehow get changed from time to time, maybe associated with updates from Zoom?


Zoom Cheat Sheet - asof 6/15/2020


Shut down all other apps and notifications


On smart device -

When beginning a meeting:

* select settings ( the 3 dots )- bottom RH corner

* select “Enable Original Sound” - Turn ON original Sound


For a desktop computer-

Computer should be as close to router as possible - direct connect with ethernet cable is best


When beginning a meeting:

* select “use computer audio”

* in top LH corner

- this is a toggle - Turn ON original Sound

- there is an arrow here where you can choose your microphone


To adjust audio settings:

in lower LH corner, there is an icon of a microphone

(you’ll see it when you mouse over the area)

* this is where you can mute or unmute your microphone (Shortcut:press and hold SPACE key to temporarily mute/unmute yourself)

* there is an arrow for additional audio settings

- make your selections for your microphone (sound input) and your speaker (sound output)

- you can also test your microphone and speaker from here

- for adjustments for higher quality sound, select “Audio settings”

< under microphone , uncheck “Automatically adjust microphone volume”

< select “Advanced”

- check the box “Show in-meeting option to “Enable Original Sound” from microphone

under “Audio Processing”

- Disable” Suppress Persistent Background Noise”

- Disable “Suppress Intermittent Background Noise”

- “Echo Cancellation” - either Auto or Aggressive seems to work depending on your individual setup

Your selections are automatically saved, but it’s a good idea to re-check them for each new meeting, and especially after updates have taken place.
