In Rocket Record, I  can hear the online voice and I can replay it, but it no longer allows me to record my voice.  When I click on the You record button nothing happens.  It worked at first, but then stopped working.  What is wrong?

Hi Larry!

I am sorry to hear you are having problems recording yourself. Please check and try the following:

Update Flashplayer:

You will need to have Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer to play the audio in our courses and use the Rocket Record feature. Please ensure that you have the latest version of Adobe Flash player. You can download it for free here:
Update or Change Browser:

Please also check that your browser is up to date. If you have an older browser please check for updates or install Chrome ( or Firefox ( to be automatically updated to the latest versions.

If you are having trouble with recording your own voice, please try checking the sound settings on your Flash Player by right clicking on the recording area (or holding CTRL + click) and selecting "Settings". Under Privacy, please ensure "Allow" is selected and tick the box "Remember". You can also check your microphone levels under the Microphone tab and to see if your microphone is being detected properly. 

Please let us know if the problem continues.



I just bought a new microphone and recording works brilliantly on my computer now where I had to use my laptop previously. I really like the voice recognition tool.
