Unclack for macOS: Automatically mute your microphone while you type

Unclack is the small but mighty Mac utility that mutes your microphone while you type. No more getting called out for clacking your way through a Zoom meeting on your clicky keyboard!

Heh, clever.

Remove background noises during a conference call with Krisp

The past few weeks I’ve been using Krisp during Zoom/Meet/Skype/etc. calls. It is a virtual microphone which uses artificial intelligence to filter out background noises. Once installed you select a microphone for it to filter, and then inside Skype/Zoom/Meet you choose the Krisp Virtual Microphone to use.

While I was a bit sceptical at first, here’s a few scenarios where it’s already helped me out:

  • My kids playing with their LEGOs in the same room.
  • Traffic passing by (We live next to a busy road — until we move to our new house that is).
  • A fan whirring in the background.
  • Me, typing, while we converse
