Microphone not working any longer

My speaking exercise are not working any more, in both Safari and Chrome, both OSX.

  • It worked fine earlier this week and I gave DL the permissions access the hardware.

  • I'm stuck on the Flash version in both browsers (I don't have the fancy new, probably because I am in the placebo test group :/

  • Flash is at the latest version "You have version 12,0,0,70 installed"

  • If I do a timed-exercise, the clock freezes during the speaking exercises. I have to click on "I don''t want to use a microphone to continue".

  • I tested the microphone on other websites and there it works fine! So I assume it is a DL problem ...

( Mic works fine in fancy new google world: Mic works also fine in crapy old flash world: )

I have this problem also. I suppose it's related to the new voice recognition that Duolingo is currently testing on 50% of all website users.
