Use the SOM toolbar when you are ready to begin. Adjust microphone settings, size, and camera settings as needed.

  • Click the red button to record.
  • Look for the microphone bar to make "waves" so you'll know it's recording your voice.
  • Use the pause button to make unrecorded transitions.
  • Click DONE when finished recording.
