    Use a microphone to transmit your voice..webcam may not have built in microphone with it,

    Make sure you have the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. Make sure you installed the software for the webcam In Yahoo! Messenger - click on "Messenger" menu on it - click on "Preferences" - select "Webcam" - click on 'Camera Source'
