For some tests using speaking questions, we need access to the microphone of your equipment. Furthermore, we may need to evaluate the quality of your recorded voice. For this, you may encounter several cases during the recording check.
A message appears indicating that your voice is too low. In this case, please speak louder in the check phase but also during all the oral questions.
A message is displayed indicating that your voice is too loud. In this case, please keep your voice down in the control phase and during all oral questions.
A message is displayed indicating that your environment is too noisy. In this case, it means that surrounding noises other than your voice are interfering with the recording. Please make sure that you do not have these noises in your answer to the oral questions, otherwise your exam could be compromised, and you may have to take the exam again. Ensure a quiet environment when answering the oral questions.
Additional mic check
Just before starting the oral question section, we perform a new quality control of the recording. This time we will ask you to listen to your voice and validate the quality of the recording. If you do not hear every word and sound perfectly and distinctly, please change the settings of your equipment or change the material.
Do not continue with the exam if you cannot validate the quality of your recording. In this case, you can stop your exam to make new adjustments or change your equipment.
Tips for the mic check
Once you are on your microphone verification page, click on the SPEAK button. Speak clearly and loudly, then click on the NEXT button to start the verification process. Please note that the process may take a few seconds.
