Psychopy crashes when using microphone

If this template helps then use it. If not then just delete and start from scratch.

OS (e.g. Win10): WIN 10
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): 1.84
Standard Standalone? (y/n) If not then what?: Standalone
What are you trying to achieve?:
I want my subjects to read the showed words and capture these words on microphone.

What did you try to make it work?:
I got 3 routines, the instructions, the trial and a finished message.
In the trial routine i placed a microphone which is as long active as the text pops up. (Starting at 1 second and finishing at 3)

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
The first routine showes up, but when it comes to trial psychopy crashes.

Hi @Benjamin,

could you please put your script inside a folder/path that does not contain any umlauts? I think Wörter might be the culprit here. (It would still be a bug though, but this could be a viable workaround for the time being.)


it worked with another experiment, where i didn’t use umlauts
it also worked inside a loop

I’ve created an issue for that:
