Audio getting cut off in the middle of the sentence

So basically, the bot that plays audio of the sentences always getting cut off, and not completely saying the whole sentence.

For example in "Type what you hear" exercise: The sentence is "Han elsker henne" but 80% of the time it says "Han elsk...???? gets cut off there, and sometimes "Han elsker he....... gets cut off on the 3rd word, rarely cuts even on the very first word so i have to click again to try to hear the whole sentence.

Also happens all the time where you have to translate the text to english, bot just doesn't read the whole sentence, so i can't hear nor learn how to pronounce it correctly.

It was all good when i started using Duolingo in the first 2 weeks, this problem surfaced on the 3rd week. Happening both on Firefox and Chrome. Tried clearing the cashe of the browers and cleaned my whole PC from viruses and malware, even cleaned my registry, still happening. So it's Duolingo's problem, not my. Please fix this.

I'm so tired of the mic failing that I'm ready to quit the app. Happens all the time.

I started learning on as well. But if so much BS will still keep happening here in Duolingo i might leave it. I think that website is even better than this one. It feels like Duolingo doesn't do anything about their broken and failing website.

Getting this problem all the time. Restarting the browser doesn't always help. Using a different browser doesn't always help either. :-(

I've been having the same problem since Firefox did the automatic update to the multi-process version 57.0. (I had changed the last upgrade from multiple processes to single process.) Since then, DuoLingo has gone from fun to frustrating.

I have the same thing happening the past few days. Because of this I also started using memrise instead. However, i find memrise equally frustrating since you can't turn off its timer, which stresses me out. Please try to fix the audio cut-off, I love duolingo, but it's just frustrating when the audio doesn't work.

Ok, so this started happening when I began using a new laptop, and switched from mozilla to chrome. I tried switching back to mozilla, but the problem persisted. Then I tried microsoft edge, and now it seems to be working again.
