Can I use Language Training without the Speech Feature?

Speech recognition contributes to complete immersion into your new language and we recommend using it throughout Language Training. However, you can complete lessons in Language Training without using speech recognition.
When speech recognition is disabled the native speaker in Language Training pronounces sounds, words and phrases for you, but you aren't required to repeat them. The screen advances once the speaker finishes.

If you wish to continue without speech recognition, you can turn it off through the Microphone Setup screen.

You'll see the microphone selection screen, if:
  • your previously-selected microphone isn't detected
  • you're using a new microphone.
