PotW: Unclack

January 10, 2021

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!


  • Unclack automatically mutes your microphone while you’re typing and un-mutes you when you stop, no interaction required.
  • Zoom, Skype, Webex, Discord, no matter. Unclack is software-agnostic and works in the background.
  • Unclack uses macOS system controls to mute input coming from your default microphone. Any mic.
  • Need to type loudly and talk? Easily pause Unclack from the menu bar and resume later.

Here’s a sample to listen to yourself:


Unclack needs the Accessibility Permission

All Set!

I ‘prefer’ to kick it old skhool

Recorded Sample

Now that’s flat!

If you look at the WAV file, you can see the solid white line, this is where I am typing into text edit.  So far, the product works and gets 3 thumbs up !
