Audio intermittenly not working

Twice while reviewing a lesson, I press the audio icon to hear the words in order to translate them and there is no sound. Yet, when I click skip, the error audio sounds, when I answer the next question, there is also sound. Has anyone experienced this problem? It didn't start until the last few days.

Maybe you should check your settings. If you switch the voice auto play off, but not the sound effects, there won't be the person speaking, but there will be the "error sounds". If it's switched on, maybe try giving duolingo an email. (Support button on the left)

If you're still out of options, (and you can't pass any lessons because of it) switch all sound questions off in your settings and it won't give you listening questions.
