Why is there no sound when I record comments?

First, check to make sure that your sound is not muted. You can do this in your computer's sound settings.

Next, make sure that your microphone is selected as the recording source, both for your computer and for Flash. Check your computer's sound settings to make sure your microphone is selected there. To change the Flash settings, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click (or control-click) anywhere on a VoiceThread.
  2. Select Settings...
  3. Click on the image of a microphone.
  4. Select your microphone from the drop-down menu.

If your sound is turned up and your microphone settings are correct both for your computer and for Flash, then you might need to check your local network settings.
