If you are using Chrome or Firefox, you can record audio using HTML5. However, if you are using Internet Explorer 11 or Safari, you must use Flash to record audio in the Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is used in features that support the editor (Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, or Syllabus).

You may need to Enable Flash in Internet Explorer 11 or Enable Flash in Safari before recording video. You will also need to use the current versions of your web browser and Flash.
