Troubleshoot Microphone Errors in Rosetta Stone by Stephanie Obodda 2018-07-04
— Brown University
Hmmmm, I was attempting to aid students/folks who have problems getting their head sets with microphones to work properly by adding a compliment for Stephanie & the CIS IT Support team posting Stephanie’s article and including what kind of head set I use for Rosetta Stone. But it may take a day or two (or a few…) before it is visible, if it appears at all – there are 0 comments on the site.
The school (or author) provides a list of head sets:
List of recommended headsets: Altec Lansing AHS302i, Andrea Electronics NC‐7100, Califone 3066‐USB, Logitech USB 350, Logitech USB 250, Logitech ClearChat Pro USB, Logitech H330, Logitech Premium Notebook Headset, Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB, Microsoft LifeChat LX‐3000, Plantronics DSP‐400, Plantronics DSP‐500, Plantronics Audio 500, Plantronics Audio 470, Plantronics Audio 645, Plantronics Audio 655, VXI Talk Pro USB‐100, VXI Talk Pro USB‐200
Note: Rosetta Stone also provides more information about their Recommended Headset Microphones and Vendors
(I had to write another comment on the site “if” it gets posted to inform them that the link of “Recommended Headset Microphones and Vendors” they provide to students is an old, dead link that no one verified…)
My additional info is that VTIN HC head sets with microphone also work successfully – it is a head set with a 3.5 mm jack that plugs into:
a) a connector with a USB connection on it for PC use or
b) smart phones / tablets via the 3.5mm jack without that connector piece
The VTIN HC head set, even though it is not one of the ‘recommended head sets’ above, works for me for Russian and Chinese language refreshers on my PC.
