Other people can't hear me.

I have been using skype perfectly for over 2 years now. I haven't changed headset or anything like that, however people can't hear me when i call them?

When i call the echo sound test i cannot hear myself, but if i go to "adjust microphone settings" i can infact hear myself?

Help me!?

Re: Other people can't hear me.

What setting do you have for Microphone and Speakers in Tools -> Options -> Audio settings?

Re: Other people can't hear me.

Try to reset Skype settings.

 

Quit Skype or use Windows Task Manager to kill any Skype.exe process. Go to Windows Start and in the Search/Run box type %appdata%, press Enter or click the OK button. The Windows File Explorer will pop up. There locate a folder named “Skype”. Rename this folder to something different, e.g. Skype_old. Restart Skype.

 

N.B. If needed, you will still be able to re-establish your call and chat history. All data is still saved in the Skype_old folder.

Re: Other people can't hear me.

Do you have more options available for selection of the Microphone device? If so, have you tried them? Also, how is the microphone connected to the soundcard?

I am on a Mac computer. I can hear others but they can't hear me. I have gone to preferences and it seems to be in order.
