Switch off annoying trumpet and honk sounds

Dear all,

almost two years of Duolingo under my belt, and by now I am VERY annoyed with the trumpet and honk sounds. They may be motivating in the beginning, but after a while they just get on my nerves. Any way to switch them off without blocking sound entirely? My work-around is to mute my computer and only switch it on when Duolingo wants me to type something I heard.

Many thanks in advance!

Go to settings and turn the Sound Effects Off.


Just to add to what psionpete says, if you're on the desktop version of Duolingo, hover the mouse over your username in the blue bar at the top of the screen. A menu will appear. Click "Settings" After you change your settings, click the green "Save" button.

If you have more questions, a good place to check are the Help articles. You'll find those by following the steps above. But, instead of click "Settings" click "Help". Good luck! :)
