Speaking exercises not working in Opera

I recently switched my primary browser to Opera, and everything seems to work fine, except speaking exercises on Duolingo. Opera does register my mic. input, it works fine on other sites. However when I get a speaking exercise, I can click on the mic. icon all I want, but nothing happens. It doesn't even start recording. Does anybody have a solution?

Okay, thanks for the reply! :) Are speaking exercises coming to other browsers as well in the future?

As far as i know - No. There are some issues with google speech-to-text API. Since the listening engine belongs to Google it is enabled only in Chrome, which also belongs to Google. Microphone will not be working in Opera for some time yet, maybe never.
