When you first access a lesson that features speech recognition, you will be asked whether you want to use the speech recognition or not. If you choose to do so, you will be guided through the following procedure:
1. You will first see the message Allow access to your microphone.
2. Click to "Share/Allow" access to your microphone.
3. "Microphone access enabled!" will be presented when this is completed successfully.
4. Click on Continue and Speech recognition is now ready to use!
Note: If necessary, you are able to adjust microphone sensitivity via the Audio settings button – simply follow the instructions there.
If you are accessing Babbel on a smartphone or tablet, you will need to download the Babbel app. It is not possible to access the Babbel lessons via the internet browser on a smartphone/ tablet.
