Is there a technical solution to fix this?
No. Apple wants users to purposely enable access to the microphone or camera.

How do we know if the microphone is enabled for the Oaks Secure Browser?
Go to System Preferences --> Security & Privacy --> Privacy --> Microphone. 
Check the OaksSecureBrowser option, if it is AVAILABLE.


I do NOT see the OaksSecureBrowser option, what to do next?
The option only becomes available after the microphone access is being triggered once.
