I'm using Vuze and GlassWire reports that "Vuze Launcher" accesses the microphone.  I have searched for related options in Vuze and online including the Vuze FAQ.

I'm guessing this is unintended given some of the blog posts I found while searching.  If it is intended then the option should be off by default and there should be a clearly labeled option to turn it on.
Since Spiggot sacked their main developer, these forums seem to rely on the goodwill of ONLY other users.  I suggest you UPGRADE to BiglyBT and enjoy what is essentially the same client with more features and in constant development by one of the original Azureus developers.  Plus, there are dedicated support chat channels built into the client and during the install process, you can easily migrate all of your Vuze/Azureus settings and torrents to the BiglyBT client.

I run over 3,000 torrents, so don't worry, the client will handle your torrents with ease and I had no problems with the migration of settings and torrents. It was all seamless. BBT looks the same as Vuze and it is legal because they (BBT, Vuze, Bit-Tyrant, OneSwarm) are all based on Azureus under a GPL License.
