Make Cyrillic script stick

Can't believe there isn't already a post on this—but I can't find it.

In Russian from English, I can't make the cyrillic script stick. It keeps defaulting to Latin script.

This problem was happening with Ukrainian before Christmas, but then it was changed so that Duo remembers your preferred script.

I'm sorry if (as is probably likely) this issue has already been discussed. If there's a fix can someone please post a link? If there isn't a fix, could someone please tinker so that cyrillic script will stick?

I complained about this a while ago:

So far as I know there is still no fix; it has continued switching me back to Latin. And it's still annoying, but I don't think there's anything you can do.

Ok, thanks. It's bizarre, because the same problem happened for Ukrainian, but they fixed it.

What garpike has seen is what I've seen. Duo will switch back to the Latin alphabet on a PC every so often but not every time. It may be when a new skill is begun, but I don't know.

I've noticed it switches back if I go off and do Spanish for awhile. If I've only been doing Russian I never have it change on me.

It doesn't change if I steadily continue doing lessons, sometimes. Sometimes, but not always, it is just fine for several days running (and I do more than just Russian, so I switch to different things), but sometimes it is not. And I don't care enough to see how Duo manages this to figure it out: I just flip the little Aa switch, grumble, and continue.

You mean on your computer, or your phone? I do duolingo on my phone and have never had an issue with Cyrillic changing back to latin, but if you're on the computer then maybe it's different.

On the desktop. It may be an A/B test.

I've seen some people complain about this, but I've never had it switch...I wonder if it has to do with OS or browser or something?

Duolingo do tests where they split the experience for users somehow. They're called A/B tests.

They then observe the difference the experiences make for users' learning.

This is probs an A/B

    There should be a Latin-Cyrillic toggle on lessons and practices (Aa-->Яя).
