In most of the cases the mic amplification is turned OFF due to which it does not work the way it should. In the control panel go to sound and then to Recording and then select your mic and then click on Properties and then go to level and then increase it so that the other person can hear it.
if you go in the Tool menu, then Options, you will get a section called Audio settings.
There you can chose the right Input device, in your case you want the microphone of your webcam, and once it is selected try talking and you should see a "green line" showing as you speak confirming that the device is properly recording.
If the green line is short, you might want to boost the volume by moving the blue dot to the right. You can also uncheck the "adjust my volume automatically" since it can put your volume very low every time a loud noise is caught by the microphone.
If the camera microphone is not listed, installing your webcam software again should make it available after a reboot.
When you look at your self on the cam (in a preview window - maybe in the audio video setup of your application) can you see yourself just fine? If so your camera is working properly and the issue is most likely on their end.
It is most likely the camera at their end, as they are able to see and hear you clearly. Try to position your speakers away from sources of electromagnetic interference as well, and tell the other party to do the same with their microphone. Ask them to run an audio configuration test for their mic as well.
Assuming you have enabed audio in the camera and Live software, there may be a problem with Windows Live, so uninstall and re install to try again.
If you have a limited amount of memory and are running other programmes, that can cause the programme to freeze up.
Make sure that Windows Live is allowed in your firewall programmes and antivirus programmes, as they may stop you from conferencing.
Last of all, we can assume the person you are speaking to has not got the volume muted or too low in your video box, which can happen at times, or the problem is with that persons programme and not your's.
