***Learners with Flash versions from 9.0.47 to 10.2 will be prompted to download a new version of Flash on the system check page, but they can still use Rosetta Course® with the old speech recognition technology by clicking Launch Rosetta Stone on that screen. We suggest they upgrade if possible or ask an administrator for help. If using the old speech recognition technology, additional file downloads that need to be installed to the c drive may be necessary.
