  5. Voice playback plays on delete


Voice playback plays on delete

If all the text in an answer is deleted, Duolingo plays back the audio recording again. Unfortunately it does this even if the audio is still playing. This can get quite annoying.

Could it at least postpone the auto-playback until the original audio is finished, please?

Edit: It seems this auto-play back only happens on written translation exercises into the native language.

i noticed that too. Mildly annoying.


Yes. This is not a bug, it is something that the Duo team thought would help you.


I think the part where it plays multiple audio streams simultaneously is a bug; it should only re-play if it has already finished playing.
