Step 3: Place heatsink on the module.

Step 4: Then secure the heatsink with screws.

Step 5: Place 40-pin Expansion and 12-pin VOICEHAT header extenders.

Step 6: Locate four standoff holes, insert extender standoffs into the holes and screw standoffs on top.

Step 7: Connect LEFT and RIGHT speakers to the VOICEHAT. Make sure the speaker cables exit on the left side.

Steps 8 and 9: Align the 40-pin female connector next to the 40-pin Expansion header extender on the development board and gently press the connector on the back of the VOICEHAT onto the header extender on the board. Then secure it with four screws.
