"Click record and say:" function sometimes doesn't respond to my recording.

Sometimes when I'm doing a lesson and it asks for me to "Click record and say:" my voice for Duolingo to analyze and grade, it records successfully (I can play it back), but it doesn't respond. It just freezes up (sometimes I'll leave it on for 10-30 minutes and still no response). I can record over and over again but the program just fails to analyze my response at all and I'm forced to hit "I don't know this" and get it marked wrong. It happens every 1 out of 5 or 6 times maybe. I've made about 20 reports on it but I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this, and if so, how to fix it (if it can be fixed). If not, then I'll contact support. I'm using Firefox via Windows btw.

Yeah, this happens to me too (I'm on Firefox/Windows as well). I've sent in a support ticket about it, yet to hear anything though. I ended up having to just turn off the recording lessons. For me, it usually eventually responded, like after a couple minutes or so, but I see that it's not responding at all to you, so that's even worse...

Same problem here, ever since I started learning.
I usually end up turning my mircophone off (cause that takes you to the next question without heart loss) and turning it on again in a new Firefox-Tab. Still I sometimes don't get to see the correct translation of that sentence, when the question doesn't appear again as a different type.

That's what I used to do, but now I turned off my microphone completely and just say every sentence out-loud to practice my speech.
