Not accepting correct answers

I was doing a basic 1 practice lesson for the vietnamese course. When a listening question came up it wasn't accepting the correct answer I was putting in. At first i thought it was being picky with capital letters and full stops but after a few more goes it still wasn't accepting it.

I can't move past those questions until I get them correct. Bit frustrating, but at least I can recognise the sounds of the words pretty well! : )

Can you take a screen shot of where you have put in the correct answer and Duo has marked you wrong? Upload the screen shot to an image hosting site such as imgur, flickr, photobucket... and post the link here.

You should attach a screenshot of the situations (instructions). Also, there should be an option in the lower left corner allowing your to report a problem, which you must "click". From there, you should be able to select an option reporting that you're answer should be accepted.

Yes I should, but I was having difficulty attaching it sorry and next time (if it happens) I'll attach it here as lrtward says below.

I did try to use the report button but it only gave 2 options for me to follow. 1 that the english is wrong or 2 that the vietnamese was wrong. There was no other option that I could see to say what had happened. so left it.

Otherwise I am enjoying the website!

Make sure you leave out the spaces when doing so! For uploading the screen shot to an image accommodating site, I would recommend using imgur (it's free and it doesn't requre an account either).

I'm having the same problem, along with several others with the Irish course.

I'm having the same problem in German, and have submitted screenshots and .... crickets. It's immesnsely frustrating that there's absolutely no response.

Using chrome now and I'm not having this problem anymore but still find that some of the translate questions can be both heard and read while others can only be read, despite there being a speaker button availible.

Same problem here too. Can anyone suggest a way how to use the website. Because even the website is not running well, in my case.
