Question about Apple MacBook Air

1 Answer

I have a Macbook Air with Microsoft Word Home and Student 2008 installed on it. I use the audio recording feature on in Word to take notes in lectures, but since the internal mic was not enough to capture the lectures, I would like to use an external mic. The Macbook Air has a single combination headphone/microphone port meant to be used with the apple combination headphones. When using the headphones, or a splitter and a microphone, the mac recognizes the mic (system preferences shows "External Mic" and shows the audio level) but Word says "No Device" and will not record. Removing the mic (system preferences switches to "Internal Mic") allows Word to record again. Is there a way to get Word to recognize the microphone, or is this a lost cause?

In sound system preferences when the external mic is plugged in, there is a drop down menu in the input tab that says "Use the audio port for:" make sure it says input.

Microsoft Office needs to be compatible with the external microphone. Just because your MacBook recognizes the mic through the adapter doesn't mean OneNote does.
