Note: If you are using Google Chrome and see the message: “https://edge.globalenglish.com/ is requesting microphone and camera permission” at the top of the browser, click Allow.

Also, still with Chrome, if you cannot record the sentence "I'm testing my microphone by recording my voice" in step 3 below, select "No, I didn't hear it" >> Adjust microphone settings and select the right microphone before closing the window. You will automatically come back to the recording step and you will then be able to record the sentence.

Note: We highly recommend a headset with integrated microphone to perform a System Check.
