    Voice Recorder widget: Allow to "Pause" and "Resume" recording

    Asked by tobistribe on January 09, 2017 at 02:42 AM

    I tried to add audio recorder widget to a form but the problem is this:

    I can record, but I can´t PAUSE the recording.

    After recording is finished I can hit PLAY and it plays, but can´t hit PAUSE.

    I can also NOT re-record if I made some mistakes...
    THATS the BIGGEST issue, i would like to grant access to people who fill out the form 

    to RE-RECORD their audio answer until they are satisfied and can move on to the next question.

    For now ALL audio data gets LOST if I refresh the browser...

    Is there a COUNTDOWN timer before recording starts?



    ALSO: If it recorded audio, i hit play and sounds good but still want to re-record it again

    i hit the record button again and some "space" opens up below the buttons but NOTHING happens...weird.

    I see, unfortunately the Voice Recorder widget does not have a pause and resume function. I will forward this as a feature request to our developers. Unfortunately, I cannot provide a time frame or guarantee that this will be implemented. But rest assure that they are aware of this issue and will be use to improve the widget. 

    For the other concerns or features about the widget, I opened separate threads for them so that we can better discuss it. You can check the following links for those:




    Thank you.
