Is it possible to mute/unmute a microphone on your own computer using
javascript?

Any examples if yes...

Javascript is just a language.
It only has an effect when executed.
It depends on what engine it runs.

A microphone is just a microphone.
If coupled to a computer, it depends on what hardware is used for the
connection.
The audio chips?
Or an USB connection?
And what programme does the coupling.

Javascript, just running in a browser,
cannot directly access the audio chips
and audio input software of a pc.

Javascript running in Wscript/jscript perhaps could,
or if a special API interface is made available.

NB Javascript is not scripted Java. Far from it.

imho!

Presumably; but news:microsoft.public.scripting.jscript are more likely
to know. It will be using WSH CScript, WScript, or embedded similar.
