how can I enable my microphone?


I mistakenly said "no" when asked permission for this site to use my microphone. How can I re-enable it? Using a Mac...


Which browser are you using?

Rocket Languages covers a couple of ways to set up microphone recording in the help section— (scroll down to "System requirements & technical questions", select "Why can’t I record my voice?")—but if you're using Safari it says you can only play the tutor’s audio at this time.


Sounds like it is a computer browser issue and you need to find the settings where you allow access to the microphone for the website.


Thank you for replying! I have tried all of the suggestions, to no avail... I'm using Chrome and have gone into the settings to make sure Rocket is not blocked. Could be something new I have to do in Mojave, which I recently installed.


Hi SeanK16, 

You can change your microphone settings in Chrome - here are some instructions:

"Change a site's camera and microphone permissions"

1. Open Chrome.
2. At the top right, click More >  Settings.
3. At the bottom, click Advanced.
4. Under "Privacy and security," click Content settings.
5. Click Camera or Microphone.
6. Turn Ask before accessing on or off.
