  1. Having worked on sound for several decades, I can tell you that the only way to get speakers to speak directly, or consistently into a microphone is to fasten the microphone to their head.

    For difficult cases, a nail is helpful.

    Yes. What he said. Don’t get me started. People get weird around microphones. My favorite one ever was the motivational speaker who wanted to walk around, including directly in front of the speakers, and who insisted he had to hold the handheld mic down around his belt buckle.

    My second favorite was the charter school graduation where Houston mayor Kathy Whitmire (five feet in stocking feet) was followed by seven-foot plus Hakeem Olajuwon. Mic angle adjustment challenge there.
