  1. Click the three dots menu button Chrome menu on the browser toolbar to Customize and control Google Chrome.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Privacy and Security in the left menu, then click Site settings, then Microphone.
  4. In the Not allowed to use your microphone section, click the trashcan icon next to a site's name to remove it from that list. Also ensure you have the Sites can ask to use your microphone global setting selected.
  5. The next time you access the site, you will be prompted to allow access to the microphone. When you allow access, your microphone should be working. You can try this test page again once again to confirm that it works.
