    We normally speak into a microphone.

    Re: To talk with / by microphone.

    Suppose that I am in a large yard and giving a lecture in front of many people. There is no microphone and people can not hear me very well. Then one supervisor comes beside me and says: "Sir, they can't hear you, please talk by/with microphone, or say by/with microphone."
    What if in this circumstance?

    They can't hear you. Please use a microphone.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Once they have a microphone, you might need to remind them to "talk/speak into the microphone."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
