AUDIO is repeating from previous question and overlapping new questions FRENCH CITY 3

Is anyone else having this problem? When a new question starts, the audio from the previous question repeats overlapping the audio for the current question. Very inconvenient and annoying when listening to the current question. The first question hear no audio, second question hear audio from both first and second question at once.... and so on. ALSO hidden and non visible WORD BANK choices. If you are using Chrome with certain extensions such as "Dark Mode", toggling the mode/extension off for the problem question might make those words/ choices visible and accessible. Works for me. UPDATE- I just completed a lesson with Microsoft Edge and it is having the same issues as with Google Chrome.

Yeah. I also can't answer the questions that require you to select the correct word, because I can't see the words to choose from.

I just posted this question in the Troubleshooting section!!! I totally cannot make any progress because no matter how many times I repeat a Lesson, I can't get beyond the fill-in-the-blank questions that don't display any way for me to answer!!!!!

Can you toggle from "use word bank" to "use keyboard" and type in the answer?

No! The screen is completely blank except for the top fill-in-the-blank question. I've tried pushing various buttons, but get nowhere.

The problem is because you can't see the choices, you don't know which number to choose on the keyboard!

Do you use Chrome extensions such as "dark mode"? Toggling extensions off seems to help make "invisible" options visible and accessible.

I have this problem for some of the answers when there are a bunch of different words to choose from because I use a google chrome extension for "Dark Mode". I turn the dark mode off and can see and use each of the words, then turn it back on after the question.

I have been getting this lately too... I thought it was because my internet is slow.

Just started today for me. I have fast internet. Strange.

Happening to me too (the audio issue). Started doing it this evening.

How was this not tested prior to release? Lately it seems like they've replaced their developers with product managers.

I was just going to post this problem to troubleshooting, then my tree changed, presumably to the new scheme, and although It’s sad to lose all my gold level fives, everything is working again as it should. Which tree are you on?

I'm glad it isn't just happening to me. I'm having it not only on French but also on Spanish, and I'm guessing it will be the same on other languages too. I hope they manage to fix it soon!

I have been having this happen, too. Super annoying. (Almost as much as the audio disappearing -- like clockwork -- as soon as I have done 4 lessons. GRRR. Talk about throttling.)

I have found that after the initial audio overlapping, I can click on the audio button and the proper audio for the current question will play again. Annoying to take the extra steps though.

Same here. I'm on my android phone using Chrome on French Tree12.

My husband and I have the same problem with Spanish today. Multiple choices are not visible except the last sentence, and audio repeats previous question. It's not only annoying, it's impossible to finish a lesson. I hope it will be fixed today, don't want to loose a streak. :)

If you use chrome extensions such as "dark mode" or others, toggling them off could help make those choices accessible.

No, I don't use dark mode, I even don't know what it is. We have Safari on Mac laptops.

I'm having the same problem with Italian. I noticed that I don't have this problem with "type what you hear" questions. I was on three hours ago and everything was fine.

I have this same sound problem. I was able to circumvent it just as Keith said by clicking on the audio or slow audio and luckily it repeats the correct sentence. Also, it happened to me for the first time that when I did some lessons I gained absolutely no experience. I lost due to this random error around 20-30 experience. Sadly, it seems Duo is not what it used to be...

I noticed the same thing today. I heard the previous question's audio when I went to the next question, then had to click to hear the current question's audio. Annoying, but I was still able to complete my lessons today.
