NTSB officials say the cockpit voice recorder from Alaska Airlines Flight 2-61 appears to be in good condition.
Crews recovered it yesterday.
It was salvaged from the wreckage by an underwater robot.
Still to be found... the flight data recorder.
The recorders may help investigators figure out why the plane spun and dove into the Pacific Monday, killing all 88 people on board.
