Typos are not always marked as wrong anymore

Hoi :)

I think I experienced this after I got the crowns update. When I have a typo in my answer (e.g.: Ik spreek een betje Nederlands.) Duolingo doesn't always mark it as a typo anymore. It also didn't mark boterhamm, leezt, kin (instead of kind) and Neederlands.

Is there an easy explanation to it? It makes me feel a bit more insecure, since I have to double check my answers from now on so I don't learn any word wrong. ^^'

I've had this impression too. My guess is that in the low crown levels it is still tolerating typos, whereas, when you get closer to five, exercises get harder.

Oh, I wonder if that's actually the solution! But if so, I don't like it, to be honest. Since you could always get a correct on sentences even with typos. I still wanna be reminded of my mistakes! o.o

I find that I always had that in some way. Sometimes I type too fast on my laptop when I do a section of Duolingo and even before the crow update (which I don't really like) I already had that. Sometimes it does mark it as wrong, sometimes not.

I think this is a positive thing. Sometimes, I mistype and end up getting something wrong, even when I know the correct spelling. This happens especially on my phone when using the app. Luckily, if you are worried about learning the spelling wrong, Duolingo will still show you what you've spelled wrong when it marks your answer.

But that's exactly the problem, it doesn't mark typos anymore. I don't want Duolingo to mark my sentences as wrong when a do I typo, but I wanna be reminded of it.
