Recording custom audio with Voice Recording

Quizlet users with upgraded Quizlet Plus or Quizlet Teacher accounts can use Voice Recording to add custom audio to sets. Voice Recording is particularly useful for language teachers and anyone studying a language for which Quizlet doesn't offer text to speech (TTS) audio.

For the best experience when recording, we recommend you use Google Chrome for Mac or Windows. You can certainly record from Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer, but are more likely to run into issues with those browsers. Regardless of your browser, be sure to use the most updated version. 

Getting started

Create a new set by selecting Create at the top of the page, or select Edit on an existing set page. Then, select the microphone icon below a term or definition to record custom audio in place of Quizlet's TTS audio. 

If your browser prompts you to grant Quizlet access to your computer's microphone, select Allow

Recording your audio 

To start recording, hold down the spacebar on your keyboard. When you're finished, release the spacebar to save your recording.



Your recording will automatically play back after you release the spacebar. If you want to hear it again, select the play icon. To re-record, hold down the spacebar and try again. To delete your recording, select the trash can icon. 

When you're done recording audio for a term or definition, select the microphone icon next to the following term or definition you want to record. After you've finished recording, select Create to save a new set or Done to save changes to an existing set. 


Can I record audio from my phone or tablet?
Quizlet doesn't support Voice Recording on mobile devices, so you'll need to record from the Quizlet website on a computer.
