Don't blow it

Test, test! Every speaker uses different techniques to check whether their mic is turned on. Some will make a lot of fuss and blow into it or tap wildly on the cap. Both methods will not be gentle on the interpreters’ ears. They may even cause health problems. So here’s some advice for your next event and also a favour we’d like to ask from you: Put some trust in your sound engineers. They pay great attention to what you’re doing and will turn up the volume if necessary. They are professionals and think ahead. And if you’re still not sure (or if you’ve had some bad experiences in the past): Just briefly check whether the microphone is switched on: Quoting Adele's "Hello? Can you hear me?" will suffice and you will get some feedback from the audience and/or the interpreting booth. Thank you!
