Testing Microphone and Speakers from another kiosk

  • Log into the kiosk by Remote Desktop Connection (see instructions above).
  • Open Volume Control. You can do this by double-clicking the volume icon in the system tray on the bottom right hand corner.
  • In Volume Control, open the options menu and click on properties:
    • Make sure the mixer device tab says “SoundMAX Digital Audio”.
    • For Playback: Check Volume Control, Wave, SW Synth, and CD Player. Uncheck Microphone, Line In, and Phone. Click OK to accept changes here.
    • For Recording: Check CD Player, Microphone, and Line In. Uncheck phone, Mono Out, and Wave Out Mix. Click OK to accept changes here.
  • Exit Volume Control.
  • In the Windows Start menu, go to Programs→ Accessories→ Entertainment→ Sound Recorder. Press record, and talk. When you hit play, the sound should play back from the speakers.
  • Tweak the volumes for various volume options under Volume Control to reduce the static that may arise. Reducing the volume of LINE IN may help.
