This will fix IF you are running a personal firewall:

Enable the Rosetta Stone app to communicate within a trusted area. This lets the app send data to the computer that it is running on. An example might be port 127.0.0.x. You can still block it from communicating with the internet if you like.

In my case, I run the Sunbelt Personal Firewall. I went into its configuration panel, clicked on the Network Security tab, and found the Rosetta Stone Ltd. executable entry. Then I ensured that a green "permit" checkmark appeared under the Trusted Out column. Apply and close. Restart RS and the speech component should work.

For me this problem was cause by my firewall blocking Rosetta stone from accessing the internet. From what I can gather, there are two components running at the same time communicating through tcp/ip (ie it doesnt really need to connect to the internet just uses the gateway to pass info back and forth)
Solution.Go into your firewall and let Rosetta stone access the internet!

Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

This is just a browser cache problem, you do not have any malware or any major problem with your computer so you do not need any special software to fix this error.
  • The first thing to try is to Go to Options and Clicking reset to Defaults and Refreshing the Page or just press F5 the shortcut key to Refresh the page you are on in Google Chrome.
  • Another way to fix Error 324 is to simply just restart your Chrome Browser.
  • Sometimes it can be your Internet Connection causing the error when Browsing sites in chrome so just restart your Internet Connection.

Problem: Rosetta Stone msg: 1117 error occurred in the speech component operating system: Mac OSX Hi, I Have Rosseta Stone installed on my macbook pro (osx) and have/used it over a week now....

Try my steps:-
1.If you know removing installed programs from MAC, then please remove this application named-Rosetta Stone.
2. Now, remove all the cables & wires if your hardware audio device & turn off your computer.
3. Reconnect all the cables & wires & start your computer.
4. This time, reinstall the audio driver.

If this doesn't work, then you may try these ones:-
METHOD 1: Perform Step 1 to 3 again & install a different audio driver instead of Rosetta Stone.

METHOD 2: (This is only if METHOD 1 is also not working) Try your mic in any other MAC by installing Rosetta Stone in that system.

Note: You may search for a different audio driver at Here search in mac column.
For any more support or any questions in future, you are the most welcome to contact me at

I try to play you tube video's and get a flashing green screen to a solid green screen

To fix a Youtube video error start from repairing your Windows registry which contains all the keys/codes for all the programs and applications such as flash, browsers and other softwares. You should choose a best tool which is able to fix the active-x and file association errors to solve your problem. A recommended software to fix such PC errors is listed at the end which you should try after following all the guidelines given here.
After repairing your registry and cleaning your Windows make it sure that your Flash version is up to date. To install the most recent version first uninstall the previous flash player through the Adobe uninstaller here: ( This utility will also uninstall the active-x component as well. After doing this install the latest flash player available at their web site.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When you are about to uninstall the older version of the flash make it sure that you have removed the registry keys of the old program from the Windows registry database. A registry cleaning software will help you to remove the unwanted and corrupt registry keys which is very helpful to make PCs clean from registry errors.
Also clear your internet history and cache before installing the newer version of Adobe Flash Player.
Have you tried playing the videos on other browsers? If the you get the Youtube videos error on other browsers as well then most probably it is the problem related to the flash. However, if only one of your browser is making trouble then also try to fix your browser. For fixing browser especially for the file association errors which prevent programs from opening properly repair the registry in your Windows.
Also do these steps to smoothly play the videos without any kind of Youtube video error:
* Disable firewall
* Disable pop up blocker
* Clear cookies, browsing data and history

Error #134 is a registry error caused by a poor or corrupted registry entry.

There are a number of ways to fixes this.

  1. Use a registry repair tool (google for one)
  2. Copy the file expansion-speech-enUS.MPQ and renamed it speech-enUS.MPQ in the same folder.
  3. Some people say rebooting their computer fixed the problem. Many systems repair the registry on reboot these days.
One or more of these should fix your problem.
