I'm using my smartphone (Samsung Note 10+) for online classes. I use Zoom for video-conference. I mount the phone on a tripod and position it so that my writing desk is visible. I then use SmartView (i.e. Miracast) to mirror my phone screen to a TV using Amazon Fire-stick. Speaker and Mic are from the smartphone only.
This setup works quite well except for the following problem -
I frequently need to mute/unmute. The only way to do this is to reach out to the smartphone screen which is very inconvenient (it is mounted on a tripod facing down on my writing desk)
How can I solve this? Can I buy some external mic mute/un-mute switch? Or some other hardware? Any other tips?
(I searched online for some products could not find many options. Bluetooth speakerphones from Jabra etc get very expensive for me)
