SOME OF THE SOLUTIONS THAT MIGHT RESOLVE THE AUDIO ISSUE:
To move further to discuss the solutions briefly, users should make sure that administrative access is
permitted and the audio option is turned ON.
Moving towards some of the methods to get rid of the audio issue are :
• Reinstallation Of Audio Drivers May Solve The Issue:
audio drivers are the key component of hardware
in your computer, that builds a connection with software and thus the applications present, such as
discord. We encountered several issues that took place due to obsolete audio drivers, that prevent
screen sharing audio to work efficiently, causing disturbances. In such a case try installing the new and
latest driver version.
• Try Clearing Discord Cache:
to secure user’s data and temporary records we use cache. This is the most
significant and commonly used component, which is accused multiple times in a single call.
This may be caused due to corrupted caches, which may be resolved by deleting the cache.
In such a case,
➔ Close all running applications and exit discord through task manager.
➔ From the windows key, choose Run to open the run box.
➔ Insert “app data” in the run box.
➔ In this app data > choose roaming folder. Locate the discord folder, and delete it by right-clicking
➔ Restart your computer and examine that whether the issue has been resolved.
• CHECK THE COMPUTER’s AUDIO SETTINGS:
if you’re encountering an issue of audio while screen sharing
during any game or application, it may arise a possibility that the computer’s audio is having the
problem. They might not be selected or configured carefully.
For this issue, check if a proper audio device is selected and then check if discord is allowed access to
microphones of the computer.
Go Through The Microphone Settings:
+ click windows+ S, type microphone privacy settings to open it.
+ make sure applications that you want are permitted access to the microphone. Furthermore,
there displays a list of applications that have access to the microphone, you can check if your
desired application is permitted access.
+ save changes and examine if the issue is resolved.
If the issue is not solved through microphone settings, try these steps:
+ open sound settings by right-clicking the icon present, and press sounds.
+ select the recording tab, and select the right one, by right-clicking on it and choose to enable.
Set this as the default recording tab.
+ save changes and examine if the issue is solved by restarting your computer.
I Hope, this will cater to your issue, if still not resolved try installing a web version of discord, to
be used on chrome or opera.
