my microphone doesn't seem to work with duolingo
my mic doesn't seem to work with duolingo. I've adjusted settings but still no success. anyone have any suggestions. anyone else with similar problems?
New iMac. Safari. Latest flash. Extension running. Permissions granted. Settings in duolingo correct. Microphone NOT WORKING! NOT WORKING! What am I not doing!
It doesn't work with Chrome either. I just spoke "why doesn't my microphone work with duolingo" into Google voice search on Chrome and it brought me here, so it is not the microphone or the settings. It must be a bug on the site.
My mic USED to work fine but now it starts to check my answer before I have finished speaking and so my answer is always wrong?
Me too, but it never worked fine; it just simply checked my answer before I've started.
Here is the stack trace I'm seeing in the console.
Chrome 35 on a retina macbook pro.

mine didn't work, then i fix it or thought I did cz now it doesn't work again!! .. works with other programmes perfectly, the problem is just duolingo... using a mac/chrome HELP PLEASE!
me too, there are no real solutions in these discussions , and they are a year old .. may have to abandon Duolingo.. no mic.. have a mac running maverick and usually use firefox, I have updated flash but can't find it or Flash manager settings in my hard drive library .. looked at Firefox discussions, Adobe flash/ mac discussions.. I am really lost.
are you able to hear? Btw I was able to set permissions on Chrome and not Firefox.. they they must have some security setting I don't understand...
But it does work outside of the website? Are you giving Duolingo permission to access your microphone?
Hello, ZiggKogg! Does test out always work for you? When I try test outs, the lisening tasks don't work for some reason. Only those parts where I have to write down what I hear.
That is what I have and the mic works in Skype and other apps, but not in Duo lingo. I use FF.
I have got it to work now, but I have to use Chromium. Apparently, FF has stopped supporting Ubuntu. However, everything else I still do in FF.
I would suggest moving this to the Troubleshooting forum. You can do that by following these steps:
Edit post (Don't forget to add your operating system and browser. For example mine is Windows 7/Firefox)
Click "Duolingo" in the editing window (it is a drop-down menu)
Select "Troubleshooting" from the menu
Is there any resolve for the mic problem using Chrome (on a MBP) ? Is it being worked? Thx.
I'm having the same problem, I've looked all over for an answer, but can't find one. I've tried everything I can think of. The problem first started when i reinstalled Chrome.
I'm using safari and I have updated ther version iOS recently. Somebody know this problem?
I was having this problem with Chrome on a MBP. While troubleshooting, I noticed a Chrome dropdown banner asking for permission to allow Duolingo to use my computer's microphone. After I granted permission, the microphone worked.
I told my student to practise with Duolingo. He is doing so now but keeps on having problems with the spoken items. He repeats exactly wat is said and very often has to repeat it because it is considered wrong. Does the system work at all?
This started happening to me a few days ago. I've adjusted the settings to always allow Duolingo and even reinstalled Flash but no luck It must be a site bug. Duo lingo can you help?
My microphone just won't load when i click on it. I gave duolingo access but it still won't work
If you are unable to get it to work, I recommend just turning it off. It is only there to encourage people to speak out loud. But, I turned mine off long ago and just began saying everything. It got me more practice than waiting for the mic did.
Every time I click the microphone: ih.js:223 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'toLowerCase' of undefined at ih.js:223 (anonymous) @ ih.js:223
Is the microphone working for anyone? I see that this is an old discussion. I have given permissions on both FF and Chrome and i am still not able to do the speaking portion of the exercises. Have been doing on my own for over a year.
Firefox is Working Fine. If Doesn't Work, Just Reset Your Firefox
Go to Help->Troubleshooting information-> Reset Firefox.
It'll Work Very Well.
