Need "Cannot hear" button

I often find myself in a situation where I can not hear. I'm in a noisy environment, or I'm in a setting where I do not want to disturb others. So when the course asks me to type what was said. I am completely helpless.

I love the "I can't talk right now" button

But I think we also need a "I can't hear right now" button


Thanks, Dave

Go to the settings page and turn off the Speaker option. That should get rid of the audio exercises.

Just to add to that, settings are located when you hover your mouse over your username where it appears in the blue bar at the top of the screen. :).

Have you considered using earphones?

April 20, 2016

Yes. That would work. However, the way I use the app is for small amounts of time ... Like as I walk between meetings,.. Etc. when I don't have earphones with me.

It sounds like the "turn off speaker" option is the way to go. I did not realize I had that option.

Even so, it would still be nice to have button indicating I can't hear because the environment can change rapidly as I move around and sometimes I can hear and other times not. I prefer to do the hearing the excercises when I can.

In other words the "can't talk" button is great. why not a "can't hear" button?
