This guide will cover how to enable Glossika's recording function.


First, check that you're using a compatible browser. Our recording function works on:

  • Safari 14.1 or above

  • Safari on iOS: 14.8 or above

  • Chrome: 49 or above

  • Chrome for Android: 96 or above

  • Edge 79 or above

  • Firefox: 29or above

Glossika's recording feature is enabled by default. This means that, while you're in a training session, you will be prompted to record your voice after each sentence you encounter.

If the recording feature has been disabled, you may re-enable it by:

The option to enable or disable Glossika's voice recording function is located at the bottom of the in-session settings menu. To access it:

1. From your home dashboard, click "Learn New Items" or "Review"

2. From within a training session, click the "settings" icon located in the top-right corner of your screen

3. Scroll to the bottom of the in-session settings menu and flip the "recording" switch — if the function is enabled, it should be green in color

4. After enabling the recording feature, a few new options will appear:

  • Enable auto-record to have Glossika automatically prompt you to record your voice after hearing the target language sentences; disable it if you'd prefer that nothing be recorded unless you manually press the recording button

  • Set preview recordings to auto if you want to immediately check your pronunciation after completing your recording; manual if you wish to only check some recordings; or off if you do not wish to check recordings during training sessions at all

5. You should now be prompted to record your pronunciation after each rep
