Record Yourself
It is very important to record yourself speaking and to compare your recordings to a model speaker's recording.  

 

How To Record Yourself
The easiest way to record yourself is with the Accent Master software.

If you don't have our software you can use the built-in Windows Sound Recorder. You can find it by going to: "Start" - All Programs" - "Accessories" - "Sound Recorder".

 

Troubleshooting
If you are unable to record yourself with the Windows Sound Recorder, try these steps.

1) Make sure your microphone is plugged in to correct port.

2) Go to the Windows Control Panel and go to "Sound" or "Sounds and Audio Devices" (depending on your version of Windows) and make sure that your microphone volume is turned up and that the microphone is not muted.
