Accessing and Installing Auralog Components

Question:
How do I access and configure Auralog?
Answer:

Important: In order to have full functionality in Auralog, you must use the Windows operating system and Internet Explorer. If you are using a 64-bit operating system, ensure that you are using the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer and not the 64-bit version. The Mac OS will allow users to access all activities except for speech recognition and practice exercises. Due to this limited functionality, those using the Mac OS should use Boot Camp or Parallels to divide their hard drive and install the Windows operating system.

To access Auralog and install the Auralog components:

  1. Go to the TELL ME MORE Web site.
  2. In the User name: text box, type your username.
  3. Note: You should have received your username and password in an email message from E-Learning or Campus Center 9. If you did not receive this email, then send an email message to Judith Shrum explaining that you did not receive an email message containing a username and password.
  4. In the Password: text box, type your password.
  5. Click the Sign In button.
  6. Install the Auralog components.

      3. Click the Yes button.
      4. Click the Retry button.
    3. A window will appear that will analyze your computer. If the configuration is correct, all the buttons to the right should be green. If there are problems detected:
      • If there is a problem detected with the computer, for optimal use conditions, verify that you are using a Windows operating system and Internet Explorer and that your computer's processor meets the minimum requirements needed to run Auralog.
      • If there is a problem with your Internet connection speed, for optimal use conditions, verify that you are not using a dial-up modem and that your connection speed is at least 128 kb/s.
      • If Flash Player is not already installed, install Flash Player.
        1. Click the Install Flash Player link.
        2. Click the Install Flash Player link.
        3. If prompted, click the Yes button.
        4. If the Flash installation window does not automatically close, close the window.
        5. The analysis will run again.
      • If your Auralog components are not properly configured, then install the Auralog components.
        1. Click the Install Auralog Components link.
        2. Finish installing the Auralog components.
          1. Click the Install Auralog Components link.
