Sound not working, unable to answer questions

When I was working on Irish, the sound wasn't working. I turned up my volume on the computer REALLY high, and it still won't work. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Edit: DuoFlash has the same problem.

It's happening to me too. I don't know what's causing it, but you're not alone. Try going to the settings and checking the switches there.

My Speaker, Voice autoplay and Sound effects seem to be on.

I tried again and got the sound back, but when I tried again it the sound disappeared.

Was this for "type what you hear" exercises? Not all Irish exercises have audio attached.

No, this was happening for every exercise in every language.

Have you checked the setting on Duolingo, your computer/phone and your / headset?

I sent one, too. The sound isn't working and it sets me back since I have to skip it.

Found out it was my Mac headphone input that greyed out the volume in my menu bar; I had used my headsets the day before… I reinserted and pulled out the headset connector and volume indicator reappeared in menu. Now I have sound.

Yes, I can't get audio on my computer anymore. I've reported it several times with no response. I also followed Duolingo instructions for such a problem and it still didn't work.

I can hardly hear the spoken German at all but when I turn the volume up the sound on the check button becomes deafening.
