Duolingo is not hearing my oral inputs. My computer mike is on.

Same here. I tried multiple times. "Un jour, j'irai surfer cette vague très célèbre" was the first exercise I got. It turned blue until vague, then très célèbre stayed grey. I kept saying "très célèbre" over and over for about 30 seconds. Finally I got fed up with it and aborted the lesson. Tried another one and got the same result.

It's "mic" by the way, sort for microphone. A "Mike" is different. For example, the vice president of the United States is a Mike, short for Michael.

Don't feel bad about the negative vote. I was glad to see your post because it showed that it wasn't a problem with my laptop. Some people love to downvote others. There's a thread about the mic not working properly already in the troubleshooting forum and that thread got a downvote as well, along with some smart-ass responses such as "did you turn on the microphone?"

I'll make a bug report and hopefully one of the staff will notice it.
