Mac OS Devanagari input issue

Hi all!

I'm on a Mac and learning Hindi, but I'm running into an issue I think is maybe a bug. Basically, when I try to type Devanagari in-lesson the application (in browser) doesn't accept conjuncts. It works fine in other applications (MS Office, etc.), but when I try to use it here I essentially get something like: क््य instead of "kyaa". Does anyone else run into this and/or know how to fix it?

Hi. The same for me. As well as when i try to double consonants like "चच" (it shouldn't appear like that).


Same question, a year later. Also in Mac. I can type the compounds in another app and copy-paste into here, but that's really less than ideal.


For those of us still following this thread, I’ve noticed that it seems to be a Google Chrome issue, rather than a Duolingo issue. I keep meaning — and forgetting
