Can you stop a recording with *, or "How do I stop a recording"

I would like to start a recording and allow the user to stop recording after pressing the * key.   On my system, the recordings start, but never stop until the call drops.

Right now, I have this scenario:

Event: On 1 press
    Speak text: "Start recording now"
    Action: Start recording
    go to another script page
        event: On * press
        action:  Stop recording.

This doesn't seem to work.  Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

First, suggest that you have at least two pages, one to start the recording and another to stop the recording.  On the Start Recording page, after you have started the recording, create an Action to go to the Stop Recording page.  On the Stop Recording page, create the event for "On number pressed".  Use the expression string ^\*$ (this basically means * and only *).

Thanks, Mikey!  That did the trick!
