When you first start a lesson on the website, you will be asked whether you want to use speech recognition or not. Here is how you can access it:
1. After choosing a lesson, you will see the option to continue with or without speech recognition. Click on With speech recognition (microphone required) then the orange Continue button.
2. Your browser may show you a message asking to allow access to your microphone. If so, click to ‘share/allow’ access to your microphone. If this doesn’t appear, move to step 3.
3. You will then be prompted to test the microphone sensitivity. Say a couple of words until the volume display reaches the green area, and adjust the sensitivity if necessary. Then, click on the orange Continue button to begin the lesson.
You can go back and adjust the microphone sensitivity at any time, via the Audio Settings button at the bottom of the screen in a lesson.
If you change your mind during a lesson and want to take it with/ without speech recognition instead, you can click on the microphone icon at the bottom-left corner of the screen to turn it on and off. Please note however that this will take you back to the start of the lesson.
