Two things of use:
1) Audacity can be downloaded HERE. You’ll find on this page a number of links and tutorials that will teach you the basics & beyond. The ability to record yourself & others, while not absolutely crucial, is a great instrument for advancing your abilities in a foreign language.
2) If you want to type in the Russian alphabet, I recommend installing this small utility is the best thing I’ve found. On that page, you’ll get a rundown on installing the keyboard file. Easy-peasy (or, as the Russians say: как дважды два – четыре. “Like twice two is four”).
