Generally, to use Krisp with an application, Krisp mic and/or speaker should be selected in the audio settings of that app.
However, there are applications that do not have dedicated audio settings and thus Krisp cannot be selected there directly.
Krisp microphone as the system default microphone
Windows allows you to select Krisp microphone as your system default device. In that case, all the apps that don't have dedicated audio settings will use the Krisp microphone.
Note: It's not possible to set Krisp speaker as the system default device. The reason behind that is that Krisp keeps human voice and filters anything else. This way, your system sounds would have been considered as noise and canceled by Krisp.
Workaround of using Krisp with apps that have no audio settings
Windows gives you a workaround of selecting the microphone and speaker that works with an application. That can be done from the Advanced sound options.
- Open the app that you wish to use with Krisp.
- From the Windows Start menu go to Sound settings >>> scroll down >>> Advanced sound options.
- Pick the Krisp microphone and Krisp speaker for the app.
Hint: Avoid setting the mic and speaker from the Advanced sound options for apps that have dedicated app settings to lower the chances of having wrong setups and any problems arising from that.
Note: It's vital not to choose Krisp mic and speaker for the Krisp app itself. This goes against the Krisp logic, as there should be physical devices working in Krisp.
