tired of typing, any way to use voice recognition?
i'm still on the beginner lessons and i like duolingo (Spanish) but it seems there is a lot of typing, in English, for the answers. has anyone tried to use voice input like cortana or something else? any success? thanks
On my iPad, I use Siri regularly to speak English answers, rather than type on a virtual keyboard. (I am a native English speaker)
When answering in the language I am learning, I stick with the intended modality of the question. For example: I type Spanish if that is what the question asked for. (I am not sure that Siri would understand my spoken Spanish anway)
Also, mobile requires a lot less typing anyway, as a lot of questions involve tapping word tiles.
The voice recognition that comes with an android tablet (mine is Samsung) works just fine on the web version of the site: an extra tap to invoke voice recognition and an extra tap to exit. (The web version of the site is so-o-o-o much better than the handheld version, IMHO, but I have a big tablet.)
