Voice input broken

Voice input quit working on Mac--both Chrome and Safari. All my settings are correct and the microphone works. Anybody else have this problem?

Duo started using a new API for the voice recognition exercises when the rewrote the website. Not all browsers support it (including Safari) but Chrome does support it so maybe you need to update your version of Chrome.

Thanks! It works fine now. Chrome is supposed to auto-update, but it didn't for some reason. I didn't think to check that. They must have rolled out the new API in the past week, because that's when it quit working.
