If you are experiencing issues recording sound in any of our software, please first check your computer to make sure that the default Sound Recorder is working properly. If you cannot record or playback recording using the default Sound recorder, you may be experiencing some issues with microphone or sound card.
To use Sound Recorder, you must have a sound card and speakers installed on your computer. You will also need a microphone for recording purposes.
Where to find Sound Recorder
The Sound Recorder shortcut can be found in Start -> Accessories.
Alternatively, you can search for the word 'sound' in the Start Menu search box.
Once you have started Sound Recorder check that your microphone is plugged into the sound card. Also, don't forget to check its sound level in the Volume Mixer. If it is on mute you won't be able to record anything.
When you are ready, click on the Start Recording button.
To stop or pause the recording, click on the Stop Recording button.
A new window will pop-up
Go to the desired location and click on the Save button.
If you close the previous window without saving the file, you will have the option to resume your recording. Click on the Resume Recording button and continue.
When finished, click on the Stop Recording button again and save your recording.
