Sound not working

Hey guys, the sound in my Duolingo isn't working anymore, it was functioning fine yesterday but today there is not sound. I have checked if my sound is muted, my computer tells me that there is sound playing when the computer pronounces the word but no sound comes through my speaker. It isn't my explorer because YouTube sound works fine though it, can someone help?

I have the same problem and I am using Chrome. The sound on my computer is on and it is working on other sites such as youtube - it just seems to be Duolingo. It was working fine yesterday and I have not had this problem since I started using Duolingo until now. What can be done to fix the bug?

Confirmed in Chromium 20.0.1132.47 on Ubuntu 12.04. The sound is working in Firefox.

I am using safari. Like the comment above, it was working fine, and then suddenly stopped working. I can listen to youtube, so it must be something with this site. I do really like this site and hope we can help you fix this bug.

I am using safari for mac: 5.1.7 (6534.57.2)

Same problem, I'm using Firefox and I've checked and tried everything said in the help section. Still no sound.

I am having the same problem but can use the program on someone else's computer and the sound works. I am on level 5 and can't go any further.

Hey!!!!!!! I tried connecting my sound on the headphones jack of my computer instead the "normal" one, and it worked perfectly, and i couldn't hear anything on every browser and with every configuration of them, hope it works for you.
