These steps will work across any device - windows, mac, or chromebook - that used the Google Chrome web browser. It can be particularly helpful in boosting low volumes when streaming through a projector and/or a Viewboard. Even if it's already at 100%!
Step 1: Type in 'Chrome Web Store' into Google and it should be the first link that pops up, as shown in the image below.
Step 2: Once your in the Chrome Web Store, in the left-hand search box, type in 'ears' and hit Enter on your keyboard.
Step 3: The first result that pops up should look like the one in the image below. The extension is called 'Ears: Bass Boost, EQ Any Audio!' and this is the one we want. You'll simply just click on the big blue button that says 'Add to Chrome'.
Step 4: A small pop-up may appear and ask if you're sure you want to add this extension to Chrome. You'll just confirm by clicking on the 'Add Extension' button.
Step 5: Once the extension has been successfully added to Chrome, you'll now see a new icon pop up on your toolbar near the top-right of your screen somewhere, as show in the image below.
Step 6: And that's it! Whenever you want to boost your volume, you'll just click on the icon in your toolbar and you can raise and lower the volume using the left-handed slider that's circled in the picture below! For a little added boost, you can also click on the 'Bass Boost' button in the bottom-right to give yourself a little added bass to your volume. This is completely optional and not required.
PLEASE NOTE: Raising the volume too much can cause damage to your speakers! Find a nice medium for your needs by raising the volume so the sound doesn't distort, cut out or bother any neighboring classrooms! Thank you!
