  •  Selecting "Block" will cause the microphone set up to be unsuccessful, and you will not be able to pass the microphone setup screen.
  •  Selecting "Allow" may result in the initial microphone setup being unsuccessful, but repeating the setup will be successful.

If you select "Block", you will see a red X over a camera in the address bar, indicating your camera and microphone are blocked on this site.

When you load the page again, it will prompt you to "Allow" or "Block" Rosetta Stone access to the microphone.

NOTE: This setting is different than the settings to allow Adobe Flash to use the microphone.
As an alternative to the above instructions, you can click on the camera icon as seen below and have the site prompt you again next time it tries to access the microphone. 
Although the message reads "Allow access to your camera and microphone", Rosetta Stone will never access your camera. That is a third party message which is why it references the camera.

If you make changes you must "Reload" the page before proceeding to the course.
