Using Voice Recording [Set Page]

You must be a Quizlet Teacher or Quizlet Plus member to use Voice Recording. Learn more about upgrading.

Getting started


Click on the mic icon to the right of the terms and definitions on any set you've created on Quizlet.


Quizlet will ask to access to your computer's microphone. Please click on the allow button (the location varies by browser but Quizlet will point to it).


Now you're ready to record your voice for the term on the screen. A microphone icon on the right will respond to the noise level so that you can check that your computer's microphone is working correctly.


To start recording, hold down the space bar. Speak and then release the space bar when you're finished.


Your recording will then be played back to you. If you'd like to re-record, hold down space bar again.

When you're happy with your recording, either go onto the next term or switch to the other side to record the definition or other language next.


Once you've recorded all your terms, you need to label your recording.


Add some details to your set description like "Now with Hebrew audio" or "With a Brazilian accent" so that other users will know what they're listening to.
