For slides that ask "How do you say...?", the timer is meant to give you time to think of, then say your answer. Your voice is not recorded. Simply self-evaluate whether you answered correctly or not.
If you need more time to answer, click/tap the pause icon to pause the timer. In order to toggle the timer on or off, click/tap the gear icon in the upper right hand corner, then click/tap the toggle next to where it says Quiz Timer.

Speaker Button: The Speaker button plays the entire phrase being learned. When hovering over the Speaker button, a phonetic pop-up will appear for the entire phrase.
Replay Button: The Reply button restarts the slide from the very beginning.
By hovering your cursor over any given word (or tapping on it in the mobile app) in the target language, you will be presented with a phonetic pop-up for that particular word. The phonetic pop-ups provide the user with the pronunciation of the target language word written in the source language alphabet or character set.
