Wimba Classroom and Voice Authoring - Known Issue: Users are not able to install and communicate with the WimbaMedia executables to access the audio and video devices.
Due to sandboxing of browser plugins in Safari 6.1 (available for OS X 10.7 and OS X 10.8) and Safari 7.0 (available for OS X 10.9), Wimba Classroom and Voice Authoring are not able to install and communicate with the WimbaMedia executables to access the audio and video devices. The user will receive an error message: JSecureDoor Error 132 (refer to image 1) when loading the Wimba Classroom and "initializing audio" when accessing the Voice Authoring website (e.g. http://myschool.wimba.com/) and attempting to use a functionality such as "run the wizard".
Note: The following workaround is only needed for Safari. Users can use Mozilla Firefox as an alternative to Safari.

Safari 6.1 and 7.0 have new security preferences to allow specific websites to utilize specific plugins in an “unsafe” mode, effectively bypassing the new sandbox and allowing the applets to install the WimbaMedia executables and communicate with them.
To enable the workaround:

On the left-hand side, select the “Java” plugin. The Wimba Classroom and Voice Authoring site should be listed (e.g. http://myschool.wimba.com/). If not, first try to access the Wimba Classroom or Voice Authoring Setup Wizard until it fails, after which Safari will list the website as a "currently open website". Please note if you are using Blackboard Learn, you will need to repeat the next few steps with the Learn URL as well, for example http://myschool.blackboard.com .
Open the “Allow” box
