Sound stops working mid session

Half way through a session the sound stops working so not only is it pointless carrying on but you lose the work you have done! Please can you fix this? A lot of people seem to be having the same problem. Thanks.

I'm using Safari and after about three session the sound suddenly stops. I have to go out of Duolingo to another site and them come back for it to work again.

Thanks a lot! Switching over to Chrome proves to be useful!

I have experienced the same for two weeks at least, most frustrating since this makes it almost impossible to get on!

I often get it to work again by tapping the speaker icon (Android). After the third time or so, the sound usually returns.

Same here. Sound quits every few lessons. Turning the program off and back on works but doing that eats up a lot of time over time.

I have the same problem on a Mac using OS 10.14.1. Have tried Safari, Firefox and Chrome the problem persists

Sound problem for me is that what I say isn't always picked - I've tried a short delay before I speak, or talking more slowly, but still randomly doesn't pick up what I say

If one is going through a level, the sound will go off but there will be a message indicating that the "sound will return in an hour." When trying to test out of a level, the sound stops but there is no way to proceed without losing everything one has done up to that point. Very discouraging, to say the least.

The sound problem does not exist if you use Chrome. It occurs consistently when using Safari.
