Sound not working normally
This happens all the time - when I continue the lessons after reading some comments, there is NO sound, the sentences, the sound effect, nothing. And I have no choice but to skip the listening exercises, which usually results in failing the lesson. Is it a common problem or is it just me? How can I solve it?
If the sound is already not working and it's giving you listening exercises, try disabling the speaker within the 'Settings/Account'. It'll be below the Username, Email, and Microphone "Things"
I know. But you said you had listening excersizes. The speaker should enable/disable listening exercises
You're not alone. I've been fighting the same issue. Other than that I am having no problems. Luckily I have this same program on my tablet and everything works fine.
I've had problems with the sound not working lately too, and wondered if it was a problem with my computer or with the Duolingo program. Sometimes, if I click on the sound buttons frequently enough eventually the sound does activate, but not always. I too sometimes fail a lesson because of it. It may be frustrating, but I think of it as an opportunity to get some extra practice in.
