Many things affect the clarity.

1. Background noise
2. distance from micorophone
3. Quality of microphone

It is important to ensure you are in a very quiet environment when recording. Ensure that you are not too close to the microphone, where it will pick up the sounds from your breath. Ensure you are not too far away from the microphone.

I like to use one of those telephone headsets. That way the microphone is always positioned the same distance from my mouth while recording.

Check in Control Panel under Sounds/Sounds and Audio Devices, depending on which operating system you are using, and click on the Audio tab.

Make sure your recording device and default device are the same, unless you are using a specific device to record, then it should be set to that.

Also, in Sounds, Volume tab > Device volume, advanced > Options (toolbar) > Properties. Tick the recording button and make sure your microphone is checked.
