So annoying when people in a video meeting:
1) Use their laptops mic/speakers so there is a lot of feedback and sound quality is crap
2) don't even mute when they aren't speaking!


@mhamzahkhan What's sad is it has been ages since the whole videoconferencing thing began and people still haven't learned, which makes me think they never will. *sigh*

@modulux I know! I was thinking the same thing! It's at least been two years of video conferencing being common. I don't get why some people don't understand how it works.

I try to make my sound be as high quality/low noise as possible, Instead of the headset that work has provided, I'm using an XLR Lavalier microphone. I just don't understand how some people don't get that background noise in a meeting is extremely annoying.

Today, a guy in my meeting was using the laptop's speakers/mic.
Even though the company has sent him a headset, he doesn't mute himself whilst not talking and it's very annoying as there is feedback whenever the meeting host speaks.

If he does it again tomorrow, I think I will have to point it out 😓
