Add ability to adjust participants volume or normalize volume while in a meeting.

I've searched to see if this has been suggested and my apologies if it has. I'm suggesting that the host has the capabilities to adjust participants mic volume or add a feature that automatically normalizes all participant's audio when joining a meetings. This will help when one person's audio is blasting while another participant is too low.

    There is no reason free software like Discord has this as a basic function, and something like WebEx doesn't.

    It's absurd how this is not already feature.

    It's a bit of an embarrasment how WEBEX, the big boy of conferencing software, doesn't have this basic feature

    I would find this feature extraordinarily useful

    This is a basic and needed feature. I cant believe how few votes this has. Its one of the essential features of discord. Please add this in - The ability to adjust individual user volume from your own perspective.

    Absolutely! It would be really helpful.

    The absence of this option is murdering my ears at this very moment.

    +1 -- full normalization would be great.

    Beyond that -- or maybe instead of or in addition to that ... It also would be nice to have a slider that shows up on hover or inn a context menu that you can pin to a participant's view. If it's adjusted to a value other than the default, it stays pinned to show that you have altered their volume. But I'm guessing that the audio streams are pre-mixed before they are sent to each participant, so per-participant options may not be possible.

    Even allowing the host to do this centrally would be great though.

    Yes Please. - Automatic audio normalisation.
    As far as I'm concerned, this could be a permanent fix (ie not an "option").
    Everyone concerned just wants to be heard. Nobody is aware of downstream audio settings. For Webex to "normalise" volume would be a huge boon.

    A decent car stereo already does that automatically when switching audio sources(eg ipod to radio to bluetooth), Spotify also has a "normalisation" option you can switch on.

    This would be a very much appreciated feature for those that frequently do international calls with various quality dial-in connections, etc. I have situations on a daily basis where one person is nearly inaudible - so I turn the volume up when they talk and then the next guy blasts my eardrums out.

    Implementation could be a simple volume icon for each user in the participant window, or a per-user right-click. Either way it should easily allow you to adjust the volume level ±12db in 3dB steps.
