When using the USA Learns apps’ “Listen and Repeat” activities, users can record their voice and play it back to compare their English speaking with that of a native English speaker. In order to allow the users to play back the voice recordings, the voice files that are created are temporarily stored on our servers.
These recordings are never shared or disclosed to third parties. They are kept for only a brief time on our servers and are automatically deleted at the end of each day.
If you would prefer not to have your voice recorded during the Listen and Repeat activities, you can simply press the stop button (indicated with a white square in the center of the button) immediately after pressing the record button (indicated with the microphone icon). This will allow you to proceed with the rest of the app’s activities without having your voice recorded.
Alternatively, you can press the Back button in the upper right corner to leave the activity altogether.
