Configure Ava Web/Desktop Audio Settings

1. Open and log into Ava Web/Desktop

2. Click on Start Captions Now (or join a room)

3. Once you're in the conversation screen, navigate to the menu on the left-hand side and set the microphone to "Ava Mic"

If you're using Ava Web, you'll have to give Ava permission to access the sound (you don't need to do this on Ava Desktop). Make sure to select your main screen, check Share audio, then click on Share:

You can keep your computer sound muted and Ava will still be able to "hear" and caption 👍
