Discord voice chat may not work because the Discord language settings are incorrect (Input mode, OpenSL SE, etc.). In addition, the error under discussion may be caused by an outdated Discord application. The affected user has an error when trying to talk to the contact. The problem is not limited to the specific operating system. In some cases the problem occurred after 2-3 minutes of voice chat.

Try these first

Before making any changes to the settings, you can take some simple steps to solve the problem. These fixes apply to users who have already installed Discord, but unfortunately no longer work.

  • Close Discord completely and try to open the program again. Sometimes this solves the problem and sometimes it does not.
  • Try to do this but also disconnect the audio/microphone connector or USB port and plug Discord back in.
  • If both of the above options do not work, a complete reboot of the computer should restore the microphone.
  • If the problem persists, you may try to exit Discord instead of closing it. To log off, just click on the small gear called “User Settings”. Log in again and see if it works.

You can also close the application and run it as an administrator. If you have not done anything as an administrator, don’t worry. Right-click on the Discord icon and select “Run as administrator”.

Check For Mutes Or Deafens

  • First, check if you stunned yourself or another user! You can check this by looking for a slash on the microphone or headset icon.
  • You can also be disabled or stunned by the administrator or the server owner. In these cases you will need to contact the server owner or the administrators to remove the Mute or Deafen server.

Reset the Voice settings in Discord

After making sure that your Windows allows access to the microphone, you can try several ways.

The very first thing to do is to reset your language settings directly from Discord.

Here is how to do it:

  • Switch to your custom settings, then select the “Language and video” option from the “Application settings” section on the left side pane.
  • Okay. Now scroll down the page and you will see a bright red button that says “Reset Language Settings”. Click Reset Language Settings.

Check channel / role resolutions

Does this language, audio and video problem occur on all servers or only on a specific channel or server?

If the problem occurs only on a particular channel or server, you may need to contact the server owner or administrators to ensure that you have the correct role or channel permissions and that you have enabled the following language permissions:

  • Connect
  • Talk
  • video

Allow Discord to use your microphone

Before making any changes to Discord settings, you should make sure that you have enabled microphone access in your Windows.

Here is how to do it:

  • Go to your Windows settings, then select Privacy.
  • Then select “Microphone” from the “Application Permissions” section on the sidebar in the left corner.
  • Make sure the switch under Allow apps access to your microphone is enabled.
