Audio gets cut off at the end

Does anyone else have this problem? It is hard to complete some of the listening exercises because half of the last word is missing.

Yes. There have been many topics about that. No reaction from DL.

This has just started happening on my Lenovo laptop using both Firefox and Chrome. Works fine with Edge however. My other (Acer) laptop has no such problems. To update my earlier post:- After a clean re-install of Windows 10 plus latest updates and drivers from MS, I still have this problem on the Lenovo laptop, with both Chrome and Firefox. Edge still works fine, so that is the solution for me. If DL or anyone else can shed any light on why, I would be interested to hear :-)

Interesting. I, also, have a new Lenovo ideapad Flex4 on which this problem occurs. However, my old laptop was also a Lenovo G550 (at least 10 years old) and I didn't have this problem. No issues playing YouTube or other streaming apps. So that leaves me completely unsure whether there's something new about how this laptop's speaker driver is handling certain types of sound feeds or there's a malfunction in Duolingo's app.

I JUST FOUND THE SOLUTION FOR ME! Go into your Duolingo settings and turn the sound effects OFF. (I have no idea why this works but it does.) I now get the full spoken answer.

It didn't work for me.

And still no reaction. It's so embarrassing. Shame on you DL.

I have this problem as well for a couple months in Swedish. SO ANNOYING!

Me too and I really wish they would fix it. I'm having to guess pronunciations from where it reads the full word, I'm going to end up sounding as if I'm mumbling Danish at this rate! Any advice for browsers this app works best on?

I've been having this problem since my Firefox automatically upgraded to version 57.0. I noticed that Firefox changed from a single process (the way I had set it after the last upgrade) to multiple processes. Ever since then, DuoLingo cuts off the audio recordings and Firefox+Facebook=>maxed_out_RAM+frozen_computer. If I click on the button to repeat the audio, it usually adds back some or all of the cropped part.

I have the same problem

May 23, 2019

Exact same problem. I'm using Firefox.

June 2, 2019

Firefox here too. But I also get it on Chrome.

Unfortunately, for almost two years Duo keeps ruining existing and working features instead of fixing the broken ones.

2 years on and this problem still persists
