    My aim is to record a lecturer using my Surface Go. I have tried using this using the in-built microphone which is mounted on the front but it picks up the noise of typing and background noise behind me better than the lecturer in front of me.

    Can anyone recommend an external microphone and which port to plug it into.

    Having read around the subject a bit it seems as if the audio jack is a joint one for headphones and microphone so you need a Headphone Mic Splitters Adapter to allow microphone to work. Am trying this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B079PJL14Y/ to see if it works. Am coupling this with a very small microphone https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000GIGR4O/ and we will see how this works out.
