I have successfully recorded my speaking voice using a usb sound device
(webcam, but that's all I got) with audacity.

So you attach your usb dongle and plug in your microphone (turn it on, if it
turns on), then open audacity.

There are two microphone icons with drop down menus on the toolbar in
audacity. Next to the lower left microphone icon, I selected 'USB
Device' (hw:2,0) in the drop down menu.  The mic's mono so no choice
there for me. 

For the upper right mic icon select 'start monitoring' in the drop down
menu. Now when you make a sound into the microphone the red monitoring
meter should hop to the right. If that doesn't happen you can stop right
there because something is wrong that must be fixed first. No meter
movement--no sound input detected; you will end up with another empty

Press red button to record.
