Please add duolingo.com to the Windows 8 / Windows RT Compatibility View whitelist

Hi there,

I've been trying to use the Duolingo website on my Surface tablet (running Windows RT) using Internet Explorer 10. Unfortunately not all the Duolingo features work - the questions which use Flash, e.g. to access the microphone, do not work. This seems to be because Flash is blocked on Windows RT for any websites which are not listed on the Microsoft 'Compatibility View' whitelist. In theory if you, Duolingo, request that Microsoft add your site to the whitelist then it should just start working.

Please can you add the site to the Microsoft Compatibility View whitelist? (In the absence of a proper Windows Store App for Duolingo at least we will then be able to use all the features of the normal website!)

Microsoft provide instructions on how the website owner can request the site is added to the whitelist here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ie/jj193557(v=vs.85).aspx#submitting_your_site_for_consideration_for_internet_explorer_compatibility_

Yes, please. This would be a great addition.


The problem has been solved now, duolingo.com has been added to the whitelist and the microphone features are working from my Surface tablet! Thanks guys!
