I want to know how to turn the mic on my Olympus Stylus

Customer Question
I want to know...

I want to know how to turn the mic on my Olympus Stylus Tough series 3000 camera when I am filming?

Technician's Assistant: What Olympus model do you have?

Olympus Stylus Tough 3000

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Olympus?

I've tried little as I just was given this camera... it takes excellent still photos but I can't figure out how to turn on the mic when using filming mode.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Where might I get a manual for this camera?
