Set Up Your Headset

Rosetta Course™ provides you with a USB headset with a built-in microphone. The Rosetta Stone speech-recognition technology guides you to accurate pronunciation. You speak into the microphone, and the software provides feedback to help you match the native speaker.

For best results:

When you first start Rosetta Course™, you'll be prompted to speak into the microphone. The speech recognition technology adjusts to the normal tone of your voice.

To access the Microphone Setup screen at any time, click the Preferences icon and go to Audio Settings in the Set Preferences dialog box.

To Set Up Your Headset:

  1. Select your USB headset device when you see the Microphone Selection screen.
  2. Click Continue.
  3. Click Continue when the Microphone Setup screen appears.
  4. Speak into the microphone in a normal tone. Say “1, 2, 3, 4, 5”.
  5. When you get confirmation that the Microphone Setup was successful, click Continue.
