Issue today.. On microphone tests, nothing happens?


I've been learning French here, and I must say this is a fantastic website. However, today I am having an issue with microphone tests. Yesterday I was doing everything just fine with no issues. Today, on some of the microphone tests, it will either work as intended, or when I record myself, nothing will happen. There's no "oops, can you say that again?" notification or anything. Just a blank white box.

I have the option to re-record myself over & over again, and even listen to myself. However, it will not say that I am right or wrong. This is frustrating as I cannot make it through a lesson without having to force refresh and pray it doesn't happen again, which it does.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Strange, it seems to have ceased shortly after making this post. My apologies!


There was a problem for about 30 minutes with the speaking servers last night. It should be fixed now. Sorry about that.
