I've been using duolingo for a couple weeks with no problems, but recently I've been unable to get past a lesson since the microphone voice recording feature doesn't seem to be working properly...it doesn't seem to be my computer or the connection, just seems to be buggy.
I see that there have been plenty of microphone issues in the past - curious if I'm missing something or someone knows a fix. I'd love to be able to continue but I can't get past this lesson and unlock the rest of the curriculum.
Take a look at here:
Speaking exercises on the new website only work on browsers that support the Web Speech API, the most popular being Chrome. Unfortunately, the old speech system was outdated and a burden on our system. If you use the Chrome browser, you will get speaking exercises again.
Features Under Consideration:
- Speaking exercises for browsers that do not support the Web Speech API
(Note: if using the Chrome browser doesn't work, uninstalling and reinstalling the browser seems to fix the situation.)
@Speir_ thanks! I was already using Chrome, but your advice of reinstalling worked. Much obliged :)
I am also facing the same issue, first two weeks, it worked normally but from last week microphone is not working whereas it is working on every other site, I am using this site in chrome only... plz help me
