No sound on the "type what you hear" issue..

I've finished the Irish course a couple of weeks ago but I am still going back on some chapters as I know I don't really know all words by heart... But for the last week I have no sound on the "type what you hear exercise". It seems to be still working on my iPhone app but not on the website on my mac. Is anyone else experiencing this issue ? I tried to change the settings, to reload the page, and I even restarted my mac in case, but no change... Thanks

Does changing browsers like from Google Chrome can fix it?

Did you go and read any of the other threads where this problem is discussed?

This is a server problem - it doesn't matter what browser you use, because there isn't any audio associated with some of the sentences that the Duolingo server is selecting for "Type what you hear" exercises. Browsers can't play audio that doesn't exist in the first place!

The change was made by Duolingo staff on Duolingo servers, and can only be fixed by Duolingo staff on Duolingo servers. Nobody from Duolingo has commented on any of the topics here, so the only thing users can do is to keep submitting bug reports with clear and accurate descriptions of the problem.

I have... It is really annoying! When it happens, you have no way of getting it right!
