Voice recording in Inquisit 6

Hi all, 
I am wanting to record up to 15 minutes of participant's speaking. I have tried to use inputdevice=voicekey and that ran fine, but did not actually record any sound. I tried =voicerecord and got an error message saying that was an invalid setting. 
What is your advice? 
Thank you.

Thank you. 

You'll want to do something like this:

<block example>
/ trials = [1=record]
</block>

<trial record>
/ soundcapture = true
/ stimulusframes = [1=mytext]
/ validresponse = (57)
/ timeout = 900000
</trial>

<text mytext>
/ items = ("This trial will record up to 15 minutes of sound. Speak into your microphone. When you're done, press the SPACEBAR.")
/ size = (80%, 40%)
</text>

Note that recordings of this length are not suitable for web use (the maximum there is ~5 minutes; https://www.millisecond.com/support/docs/v6/html/language/attributes/soundcapture.htm ).
