Yes, there is. If you hover your username in the upper-right corner of the screen and click "Settings", the first set of options you'll see will allow you to disable both microphone and speaker.

Pardon, why do you need a microphone to hear words or (auto-)play the audio of sentences?

Erkläre bitte mal: Warum benötigst Du ein Microphone, um über eine Soundkarte bzw. Köpfhörer (z.B USB, etc.) Audio zu hören?

At the office:
Did you even know that your employeer can kick you if you do stuff on the company/office PC which you are not officially (written) allowed to do? So please, ask them BEFORE you use that computer privately!!

My suggestion: Get a mobile smartphone, UMTS 3G/LTE Internet plan and use the mobile app.

Thank You Sir, for your very honest reply and a bit rude one too. We are not allowed to use internet in our handset. So, using a "smartphone, with blaaah blaaah .... " is a bad option. And per se, if I am learning german through DuoLingo,I can call myself that smart at least, to download the Duolingo Application in my "SMARTPHONE". Thank You.
