What is system sound?
System sound is the sound that comes from the speakers integrated in our computers (or from the headphones we have connected). For example, when we listen to music, the sound comes out through the speakers of our computers. So, our students can’t hear it or they hear it badly.
And how is this sound shared on Skype?
To share system sound now we just need to share it as we share screens. That is, during a call click on the butto for sharing screen or go to “Call” on the menu and choose “share screen”. There you can choose if you want to “share system sound”. And that’s all. At this point, the sound of your audio or video will get to your student with your voice. Of course, your voice will be attenuated, so the main sound will be the system sound.
But, what if I just want to share the sound?
Maybe you just want to share audio and you have nothing visual to show. In this case, the only thing you can do is: choose a window that you can show, instead of showing the whole window. This you can show a neutral window, or a picture, or even the music player you are using.
