No longer a microphone option

  • 1007

I'm using Duolingo on a Windows desktop with Firefox and on iPad. There used to be an option for Microphone, but not longer. If I go to Settings, there are only options for User Name, Email, Speaker, Sound Effects, and Picture Profile. Does anyone know how access the Microphone?

There's no Microphone? Really? I have it. By the way, I'm using Google Chrome, which you should use too. It's faster and has a better, modern look.

Per your suggestion, I have added Chrome to my arsenal. It's been a godsend - thanks for the feedback.

I will answer you in greek because I don't know the words in English. Somebody can translate in English my greek sentence?

At the moment Duolingo does not support the Microphone feature in Firefox.
Unfortunately, you have to use the Chrome browser for speaking exercises.

If you have an Android phone, you can do the speaking exercises in the App, and continue the other exercises in Firefox. This is my personal solution for this issue.

Thank you everybody for letting me know I had to use Chrome. I would like to make the suggestion that there be a notice in the Settings box that, for users of unsupported browsers, the microphone option is only available with Chrome. Could someone please tell me how to submit such a suggestion?
