My microphone is working everywhere but in duolingo which keeps me from completing lessons where I need to speak the language. I have tried duolingo in both IE and Firefox and neither seems to work ("I cannot hear you" messages, etc. from duolingo). Is there a way for duolingo to test microphone usage like Skype does?

The microphone does not work with Google Chrome. I used Mozilla Firefox, and it works ok.

The opposite was true for me, on a MacBook Pro.

I have used Safari on 2 different Macs. I have used Google Chrome and Explorer on 2 different Windows computers. My microphone used to work with all 4. It is still setup correctly but none respond now.

My microphone works in all applications except DuoLingo. When I click on the microphone button in DuoLingo, nothing happens.

Enable it in your settings. I found that quitting and restarting my browser (Chrome) got the mic working again, for what it's worth.

Microphone sometimes picks up maybe half the words I say, and sometimes to pick up nothing at all. Mic is configured properly (Blue Yeti used for online radio using Voicemeeter Banana) and works with everything else smoothly.

Could Duolingo please add functionality in the settings to configure the mic to work with its courses?

Yes the Microphone bit seems very troublesome. Different Operating systems and different browsers, different devices all give different results I've yet to find one that consistently works properly. So far best option I've found is using Win7 and Mozilla Firefox ver 38.0.5 on a Dell E5430 sort of works - it allows you to go through the motions of recording an answer but even that is unable to play back your answer and you can say what you like it seems and it will provide a pass! Nothing is ever perfect although overall I am getting on with Duo Lingo and it's actually forcing to learn and understand correct grammer - I take the pronunciation bit with a bit of salt - I'm not even sure sometimes whether their pronunciations are correct - probably not. Heh Hoh If anyone out there knows of a working combi or a way to get it working so that it does actually pick up on rogue pronunciations please advise

On a PC with a version of Windows older than 10:

If you go into the Control Panel (Panneau de Configuration in French), click Material and Audio, then 'Manage Audio Devices' (gérer les périphérique audio) and play around with the settings in the 'Recording' (Enregistrement) tab, try changing the default item, etc. then that should work.

If it works perfectly, when you hit the play button after recording your voice, it will play your voice back to you.

If you mean you've turned it off in Duolingo and want to turn it back on again, go to: https://www.duolingo.com/settings/account

Hope that helps!

Somtimes the "start" Microphone button disapear in the middle og af leson.(Mackbook pro and Firefox). The only workaround is to switch off mic. for the rest of the lesson. Is it possible to switch on mic again during a lesson, whitout leaving the lesson?
