- In the list of installed dictionaries, click the desired dictionary
- In the window that opens, click INSTALL SOUND to start downloading the file. If you see a DELETE SOUND button instead of the INSTALL SOUND button, this means that the sound file for this dictionary has already been installed. If neither INSTALL SOUND nor DELETE SOUND  button is displayed, there is no sound file available for this dictionary.

Once the sound file is installed, you will be able to play back recorded pronunciations by clicking the loudspeaker icon in dictionary entries. Note that recorded pronunciations are available only fro the most common words.

If nothing happens when you click the loudspeaker icon, check the volume setting. You may need to increase the volume by pressing the appropriate volume button on your device.
