Speaker doesn't work

How can I make the speaker work? It works outside of duolingo. It just doesn't work inside duolingo. I can't get past the 1st basic lesson without it.

Have you tried going to your settings (http://duolingo.com/#/settings/account) and selecting 'speaker' on?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Janetji

yes. I have. For now I have the speaker and microphone turned off in the profile as that will allow me to complete the lesson with them. I wonder if duolingo is dependent on Windows for speaker support. I run linux. This is the first thing I've had that the speaker didn't work.

Sorry about this! There are a number of reasons why you might not be able to get the speaker to work. It could be that you have an old or outdated version of flash installed, you might have browser extensions that block flash, or flash crashed. You should try: reloading the page, updating flash, and/or disabling or removing browser extensions. Can you try, and let me know if you're still experiencing this?

Kristin, I'm glad you asked about extensions. I forgot I was running flashblock. Everything else gives me a little symbol to click to let flash work and I just didn't think about it since I didn't see the symbol.

Great! Glad it was figured out.
