I guess most of us do not have problems with audio, but i do remember
a few IETF ago a colleague who struggled and i think never figured it out.
Worse yet, he is an audio professional (will not name names ;-)) But
that might have been the issue, because his PC had some more complex USB
audio hardware.

Most often the problem seems to be that the browser needs to ask for
permission to use audio input device and somethimes the browser seems
to be preconfigured to deny, so the ask never shows up.

Most easily tested by looking for another run-in-browser application
that uses your microphone and check that that works successfully.
Trying the different browsers also helps. For me, Firefox is typically
easier for this problem than chrome.

Good luck
