System Requirements

In order to get your language-learning experience off to a strong start, it is important to ensure that your computer meets the Rosetta Stone® system requirements. To access a full description of these system requirements, click HERE.

Headset Requirements

Rosetta Stone® speech-recognition technology is a key element of our language-learning solution. In order to utilize this feature, you'll need a USB device equipped with a microphone: either a USB headset or USB earbuds.

For best results, the device should be certified for speech recognition, either by the vendor or a third party.

We recommend that it have a directional microphone and noise-cancellation capability. The microphone part of the device should easily adjust into a consistent position, one to two inches from the corner of your mouth.

Recommended Microphone

The recommended USB headset microphone listed here has passed Rosetta Stone quality-assurance tests for speech recognition. It's compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
