Why does my microphone not work?

I can hear my contacts during a call, but they can't hear me. I tried setting up my microphone, but for some reason the green bar doesn't move when I talk, and I don't know how to correct that. Can someone please help me figure out how to make my microphone function?

 

Thank you!

Try a test call (to echo123). If required use the audio setting menu to fix any problem.

I tried both of these, and it does not pick up my voice at all. The only sound that registers is when I type on my laptop, but not my actual voice.
