Computer technician: Russell H., Computer Repairer replied 2 months ago

Your Mini Mac does not have a built-in microphone, it appears. Some models of Mac computer do, but some don't.

You will need to get, and install, a microphone to plug into its Input jack (or perhaps even an [Apple compatible!] USB microphone) which will then provide your computer's setup with an Input Device for sound.

If you need any specific recommendations, first examine your Mini Mac model, and tell me whether you find a 1/32-inch type (small) audio jack on it labeled 'microphone' (or with a similar logo), or whether it only has USB ports. And I will provide recommendations.

- If this answers your question, please rate my answer using the five-star interface at the top of the JustAnswer question page .... A five-star rating would be appreciated! Thank you.
