Slow response to oral questions
The response is so slow that it makes timed practice unusable. Can anything be done?
Speaking practice on a PC with Windows 10 and Chrome. I have no slowness in any other application and had none in Duolingo prior to the recent "upgrade", so I think it's somehow related. It's conceivable that the problem relates to Duo not supporting Chrome properly so another browser may work better. I will try that, and if that fails I'll just wait for Duo to fix the problem.
Thanks, that's a good idea. I don't think I have any extensions that use the microphone (and would thus be suspicious) but I do use an ad blocker and a couple of others.
Or it could mean your browser is slow, to fix that you can download a different one
The problem that I was having has gone away. I'm not sure exactly when because I turned off the microphone for a while using Duo settings , but at least a week ago. For what it's worth I had sent Duo a description of the problem and my software environment and got a polite response.
Perhaps it helped.
