    I bought a microphone to use with google voice but when I tried to call someone they couldn't hear me. I think it has something to do with how my older laptop can't pick it up as a device. If I get a USB headset will my computer pick it up as a device? And does it matter which one I get? Or will just any USB headset work?

    enter the audio options and set the microphone active also check that a mic boost is checked as well in the recording settings

    The only thing I could find was manage audio devices so I click on my microphone but I seen that it was already enabled so I put the volume up and tried to call someone but they still didn't hear me my computer just went haywire because speech recognition was on it also repeated what I said about seven times probably because of feedback.
