VrChat Valve Index Mic questions

My Valve Index mic has some trouble working in vrchat, for some reason it works everywhere else but when I load up vrchat it mutes my mic not only in the game but also for my whole computer. The toggle voice button is also greyed out so I’m not sure if that is the problem. I have changed the default input on steam vr and vrchat itself to my Index mic, as well as changing the privacy setting so applications can’t take exlusive control. I have no idea what else I could do.
