I can't hear the audio for an assignment. What should I do?

If you are having trouble hearing the audio in your book, try downloading and installing the latest version of Flash from Adobe.

Click the Download now button to download and run Adobe Flash Player. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.

I can't record an assignment. How can I fix this?

If you are having trouble recording, check your Flash settings. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Open the exercise, and right-click on the white space directly beneath the Record button.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. At the bottom of the menu, click the second tab from the left (the tab has a monitor with an eye on it).
  4. Make sure the Allow option and the Remember check boxes are selected.
  5. Click the fourth tab (the one with a microphone on it).
  6. Make sure the record volume is up all the way and the correct microphone is selected from the drop-down list. (If you have the correct microphone selected, you will see a green and red bar move whenever you speak into your microphone.)
  7. Click Close.

If you still cannot record, the version of Flash installed on your computer may only be compatible with a USB microphone. Newer versions of Flash are designed specifically to work with microphones that connect via USB ports. Using a USB microphone should solve the problem.
