2017 and Duolingo still depends on Flash

I was practicing French and just realized I can't use my microphone because I don't have flash player installed.

I found some threads commenting about Duolingo's flash dependency, so here I ask: why does Duolingo still depend on flash even though it was proven many times to have a lot of security flaws and being bad? Why not use something else like JavaScript? The newest browsers aren't bundling flash by default because of its security issues. It's 2017, Duolingo has to get rid of Flash.

Not all browsers have stopped supporting Flash. I think Chrome still supports it but it is an issue that Duo will have to address soon. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why Duo had a major update to their website recently and they are currently working on it.
