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.

Phonetic Pop-Ups / Slower Pronunciation
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. By clicking or tapping the word, you will hear a slower pronunciation of that particular word.
