      Was the microphone connected once the meetingroom was entered?

      1. Did the participant accept AdobeConnect to Access their audio-device (pop-up question)?

      1. Is the microphone muted manually?
      2. Can the participant choose the right microphone from the microphone-menu bar?
      3. Have you run the Adio-Setup wizard?

      Upon trying each step, log out and rejoin the meetingroom.

      The quickest fix is to log out and come back in (keeping the headset plugged in). Otherwise send the link to this troubleshooting-tutorial.
