Opera also isn’t working.
Here’s a screenshot of the plugins screen in my chrome.
That is probably a silly question, but have you tried downloading and installing the latest java update from their website? I know I couldn’t start recording on Firefox until I did that.
@Rafal_Piatek, not a silly question
Things I’ve checked:
I am on the latest Java, 'I’ve re-downloaded it, and the newest version is the only one installed.
I’ve checked all my microphone settings (that I can find), turned them on and off and tested.
I’ve tried on old courses where I’ve altered the database columns, and on a brand new course (created in the Bulgarian for English speakers section - I believe different categories have differing database column set-ups)
I haven’t tried different browsers or incognito mode (I can’t remember my password at the moment - I know it’ll come to me! ) but other users have said they’ve tried and it’s still not working.
The problem is some kind of misunderstanding between the newest version of Flash and memrise code.
I’ve just tried to update Java in Firefox. For that, I had to download the latest version of Firefox. And it does not run Java at all :(.
In this latest Firefox, recording also works only one word at a time The ‘next’ button still results in scrambled recordings.
Also, I tried in Internet Explorer - which still uses Java. Latest IE, Java updated, recording multiple items still doesn’t work
It’s not working for me either! I thought it would be such a nice feature to add for my kids but I can’t get it to work!
Same error… Audio Recording on Chrome doesn’t work! The console is empty. FlashPlayer is updated…
I have submitted a bug report concerning Flash directly to Adobe - should have done that a month ago. I’ll keep you posted if they answer.
Well, recording on chrome and all the other browsers is working for me since a couple of days ago. I think they have already fixed it.
It’s still not working for me For over a month now
It’s been fixed for me for at least two weeks now, but the problem of increasingly garbled audio when you go straight to “next” persists. As a consequence, I’ve started bulk recording audio using Audio Recorder
and doing one-off recordings using the Memrise’s flash recorder when I want to add something or record an alternative.
I’ve found that by batching my recordings using Audio Recorder, then uploading, it makes the whole process faster, once you get into a rhythm.
However, it would be nice if the system worked as intended, as it makes it harder for me to recommend Memrise to other language teachers - and I still do, very much, because I think it is great - when you have to explain all the caveats.
The problem is still here. Does anybody work on it?
So annoying - months now!!!
I also still have this problem. I record in Firefox word by word. After I record a word, I have to close the recorder, then find the level again, and the next word, and record… It takes ages :(.
I just tried to start recording my words but I cannot, then I found this thread. Any chance someone sees this fixed, please post here. Seems like they won’t have much quality content being created if no recording option works… pity.
I have the same problem.
I have the same problem and can’t fix it.
I was informed that Memrise team knows the problem persists, but fixing it is not their priority. They focus on official memrise courses instead
It’s not a priority, the problem doesn’t occur on every computer.
You can ask a friend to use their computer and to make the records.I tried to record in other places but it’s very slow and time-consuming process. Now I’m using soundoftext.com.
This perfectly work. I didn’t know about this. I installed Flash so many times that I was thinking the problem was the site. Thanks for this information, it was really helpful.
