Sound files not working on any platform

Tried different browsers on Mac desktop and the apps on iphone and ipad. Sound effects working fine, but language sounds not playing (so can't provide an answer to "type what you hear"). Tried logging on and off as well as turning sound settings on and off. Was only able to complete today's lesson but keeping the sound off and just typing the answers. Will now try the languages other than Italian.

Spanish sound is working on desktop. Italian was not.


Have you checked the Duolingo settings and made sure that sound is turned on?


Eventually it came back on in Italian too. Must have been a temporary glitch. Still odd that it was in only one language. (If it was the settings it should have been the same problem in all languages.)
