Check and Save


8.  Once you have recorded your comment, you will have an opportunity to play it back to yourself to make sure you are happy with it.  Once you are happy with the recording, click on the blue save icon.  If you are not happy, you can click on the dustbin icon to delete your recording and start again.

Saving Recording


9.  During the saving process, you may see all of the above messages.  Keep in mind that longer recordings will take slightly longer to save than shorter recordings, so if you have recorded three minutes of audio then you may see the ‘Saving…’ message for some time.  Once the recording has saved, the Saved! message will pop up briefly.
