How do you turn off annoying sound effects?

When you get a question right, some annoying bell chimes, and at the end of a lesson, trumpets or something. I find it a bit aggravating when the volume is turned up to better hear the voice generator. And man, I'm sure this used to be an option.

Did they take it away or am I becoming too old to use technology?

PS using duo in a browser.

It still shows up for me: https://www.duolingo.com/settings/account Is it not there? If so you're probably just a part of an A/B test.

You can put the sound off but this is annoying if you do 'type what you hear'.
