  Change prompt "wants to record audio" to "wants to access microphone"

Bug description:
  The prompt when the camera wants to access the hardware to record
  audio is currently "wants to record audio". This is not really
  accurate since an app can request access to the microphone without
  actually recording anything. furthermore the direct translation to
  French as an example is not really meaningful.

  Something like "wants to access the microphone." would be more accurate since it's actually what the application requests access to.

  "Microphone" is also consistent with the word used in system-
  settings/security & privacy/app permissions
