Browser extension for fixing typos in valid answers

For anyone concerned with the typos problem (including me), I published a small browser extension to provide a work-around until it (hopefully) gets fixed on Duo's side.

The download links for Chrome/Firefox (and some technical details for those interested) can be found here: https://github.com/blmage/duolingo-unicode-normalizer.

GitHub issues are most welcome if you have a feature request, or if you find anything not working as expected!

It worked!! If it also solve the problem with DL giving no credit for completions, then you really did something great. I'll have to test it more thoroughly for that.

Alas, it does not fix my problem with completions.

However, will the Chrome extension work with Opera? I will try it and get back to you.

It does work with Opera. I am hoping it also solves my problem with correct answers being marked wrong as well as the completion problem (so far, so good after five passes). Thanks!

Thanks for your feedback, and glad it could help!

Regarding the completion problem, I have actually never encountered it, but I'll try to use Firefox for the next few days to see if this could be related to a regular use. I'll keep you updated if I find anything interesting!
