wpDiscuz Voice Commenting addon adds a microphone icon/button on the right side of comment editor toolbar. This button allows to record your voice and post it as a comment. The record processing is performed by your device. Once you click the microphone icon, it asks you for corresponding permission:
If you click the [Allow] button, it starts the voice recording process. You can see the recording timer with [Stop] and [Cancel] buttons:
During recording, the record button will be changed to a stop and cancel buttons. Click stop to stop the recording. Once record is stopped, you can either post it as a voice comment or delete it:
If you delete the record, it’ll suggest you again [Record] or [Cancel]:
The voice comments will be displayed as a regular comments based on comment/reply hierarchy with the audio player. People can click the play button and listen to your message. The audio player looks different on different browsers because it’s a built-in HTML5 audio player provided by browsers:

Hi! I have two quetsions:
1. This is enabled on mobile device through the rich text editor, right? If I have rich text editor off on mobile, people on mobile can’t voice commenting?
2. Where does the voice save? WP media library?
It works with the rich text editor off. You can check it here: https://addons.wpdiscuz.com/wpdiscuz-voice-commenting/
It can be found as all the other comments. In the Dashboard > Comments section.
I had the same question – I think Pagna wanted to know where the audio files go – they go to a folder that wp discuz creates under wp-content/uploads 🙂
