I am a teacher using the SpeedGrader and a microphone to provide media comments. I have tried using a USB microphone via a desktop computer with Windows 7 and Chrome and Internet Explorer, and I have also tried using a Google Pixelbook's integrated microphone as well. What I've noticed when trying to give media comments using the Flash plugin in Chrome AND Internet Explorer, I have to manually adjust the microphone sound levels each time, due to the horrible feedback noise and extreme volume. I've tried several times to lower the volume of both the speakers and mics, but each initial voice recording is way too loud.
Are there any workarounds to having the options save without having to adjust them each time for every student's assignment? The feedback especially is horrendously loud, and I believe it is either an issue with the flash plugin or Canvas itself. Thank you!
