I would like to see a button in the lessons that would enable the microphone just as we now have a button to disable the microphone. Currently, if we disable the microphone during a lesson we cannot enable until after we complete the lesson. Sometimes DL gets stuck during a speaking lesson and the only way forward for me is to disable the microphone. It would be helpful if I could turn it on again.
i really dont get how you actually use the mic even though i have enabled it on settings
You can enable your microphone. Just go to your settings and you will see microphone and 2 buttons next to it, push on the "on" button and then on "save changes". Have fun practicing :)!
If you navigate to the Settings area during a DL lesson you loose your progress and must start over. I tried enabling the microphone from DL open in a second browser tab, but it does not change the microphone setting in DL open in the first browser tab.
Try to refresh your first tab, altough I think either way you do need to start over with your progress, no matter what way possible...
Thank-you! I don't know how it got turned off ...but I couldn't use the mic in any of the lessons in multiple browsers.... Haven't been online using duolingo since Xmas!
I am using DL on a Galaxy 2 Tablet. When I selected the "can't talk now" feature, DL said it would turn back on in an hour. So far it has not come back on. Do you know anyway I can restore this feature. Currently I am on a 640 day streak.
Is it possible to do the microphone lessons with the app? I can't figure it out.
Whenever I try to use my mic it either says I'm too quite or it doesn't understand no matter how loud or perfectly I say something. I should probably start my own discussion for this but I thought maybe would have a suggestion to help me?
Try adjusting your mic settings.
For Windows users: Start, Control Panel, (make sure to view small icons), speech recognition, set up microphone, and follow steps.
Otherwise, you may want to try a different mic
Yes I have the same problem, I forgot they even had the feature, because I disabled it near the beginning as I was in a room with other people. It seems ridiculous that I can't enable it again without deleting all my progress!
