Recording voice using Chromebooks

We just switched over from using Windows devices to Chromebook devices. Our SPED teachers are worried that their students won't be able to record their voices, and not move on, when using Chromebooks. Are you able to record you voice in Read 180 using a Chromebook. We are using Chromebook 11EE for educaiton. Do you have to download an app or extension to do this?

    With the right configuration, students can record using Chromebooks. Please look at the specifications at http://www.hmhco.com/product-support/products/read-180-universal/. The first two documents at this location address all the specifications needed. Dee Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
