Using Classroom Speakers and Audio in Microsoft Teams


Microsoft Teams is an easy way to pull together a group to share, collaborate and communicate in one central location without the use of phone calls that take time away from our day or emails that can easily get buried.  From directly within Teams we can bring everyone together to share information, securely edit files live and at the same time, bring together Microsoft Office 365 apps (OneDrive, OneNote, Planner, Forms, etc) and third-party apps and websites in one place, tag members of the team in conversations or actions and customize the work through adding notes (OneNote and others) and other applications.

For a more in-depth walk-through with Microsoft Teams, view the Tech Talk video training.

Using Teams in our classrooms can sometimes require settings to be changed to meet your class needs.  This article will help you pipe sound through the speakers in the classroom if you are not hearing it currently.  Please try the sound before changing any settings.

Using Speakers in Classroom

  1. In the upper-right corner of Teams, you will see your picture.  Click on your picture, and you will see a drop down menu.

  2. Click on Settings
  3. Next, click on Devices

  4. On the Settings -> Devices menu, click on Speaker and then select the ExtronScalerD as your speaker device.  The device may be named something slightly different depending on the room, but there should be something similar in the menu.  Do not select Speaker/Headphones.

  5. You can now close the Settings menu, your settings will be saved.  You do not need to do this again, unless you wish to change the settings.
