how do I turn speech function back on?

I turned my speech function (when I speak into the computer to answer) off because I was in public. Now I want to turn it back on and do not know how. Any advice would be much appreciated!

I just figured it out! Just in case anyone else has this problem, here is the answer: go to your screen name and select "settings" from the drop down menu. There will be a choice to turn microphone "on" or "off."

Is it true that you can't turn this function back on after a while? I used to practice on my phone for a few months, without microphone. Now I'm practicing on my laptop, and the microphone is on, but still I don't get any speech training...

i found this thread because i could not turn on the speech lessons and there hadnt been any updates, the only way i could find was under accessibility in the settings of the app, no way on the site
