No speaking exercises

    Hi. I'm not getting speaking exercises for any language (obviously I'm only doing the German tree, but I tested other ones as well). I have them enabled in the options. I first used Duolingo a few years ago on mobile and they worked just fine.

    Duo are now using a new multi media API for the speech exercises. Not al browsers, such as IE and Safari, support the new interface but Chrome and a few others do. I would try Chrome as it seems to be Duo’s preferred browser.

      Thanks. I'm using Firefox, that may be the problem.


      I'm using a PC and the sound for Duolingo has never worked right in that some syllables are missing at the start - Probably three. syllables. I decided to live with it and always click on can't listen now when needed. If others have this condition, it would probably be useful to record listening questions with a few seconds of silence before the actual sound we are supposed to hear. I'm ok. My thought is about if it is a wider problem,


      The new API for speaking exercises is only supported on specific browsers (the Chrome browser, in particular). If you switch to using the Chrome browser, speaking exercises should appear in lessons again. :)
