Skip Microphone Questions?

The mobile app has an option to skip the microphone questions if you're in a situation where you can't speak aloud. I can't find how to do this on the web version, apart from hitting "skip", which causes me to be marked incorrect for that question. Is there some way to do this, or is it just not an option on the web version? And no, disabling the microphone on the computer doesn't work.

Click on your username at the top and select configuration. Turn off "Microphone" and you will not be presented Speaking questions again. Duolingo is not really good at detecting if you reproduce the words well enough anyway. It is not its forte. I turned off the microphone option for the website a long time ago. It does not effect the app.

Seriously, use the app if you cannot get to website (traveling or too busy that day so you cram a refresh or two). The website is much more challenging and useful for learning.

You are welcome. At least you found it useful. Someone must not have liked my response though and gave a thumbs down. :( Oh well...
