Turn on mic in browser?

I am trying to learn Italian on the blackberry playbook browser but I can't get the mic to turn on to hear my voice. Should this be a "feature request" or am I just not doing something right?

Hi Linda,

I was checking in a website, using the PB browser and seems like it is not interactive, the mike won't be turned on by the site. The only way so far, that I know, to turn on the mike is using the applications voice notes, video/voice chat, recording movies  also.

I think it will be a feature request, in a future OS release. Smiley Happy
