Having issues with speaking lessons when using Brave Browser.
Recently switched from Chrome to Brave browser and whenever I click on the blue microphone to speak, it activates for an instant then stops. Resulting in me getting the lesson marked wrong.
This happening to anyone else?
I use brave and it works fine. You might need to "drop shields" (the lowering security option in Brave) for duolingo.com for it to work properly.
Also make sure you're not accidentally hovering over a word just after you click the microphone, as that may stop it as well.
i let the shields down and same problem.Could it be that I need to speak louder?
Perhaps. Does your microphone work otherwise, in other programs?
hmm, that is frustrating. I am at a loss to help you. Sorry! Best of luck fixing it...
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 Unfortunately, the old speech system was outdated and a burden on our system.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.
