No Audio Play in French
hey been using duo for some time and love it. however today i am not getting the audio for french. im using computer not mobile, there is no play button for when the sentence is french. i can mouse over hear the individual words in french but cant have the whole sentence read. anyone else? pic of what it looks like (no play button) http://imgur.com/JRm3xkQ
update #3 from what i can tell it is now working again.
update #2 can get sentences read if you click the strengthen skills but not when you are redoing a skill or a starting a new one. maybe this bug is in relation to the release of irish and danish? they happened on the same day
update #1 i added irish to see if it would read whole sentences and it did. then i added german and it did not read whole sentences (no normal play or slow play buttons see screen shot)
Another voice to the crowd: I'm having the same audio problems.
With so many people having this problem, it can't be cookies, a particular browser, a single visit to the Irish modules, etc. This is Duolingo's problem: I hope they fix it soon. The exercises are pretty pointless without the audio reinforcement.
The odd thing is that the "write what you hear" function still works.
I got the exact same issue in the Dutch (from English) course. Words will play on hover, but no autoplay. Tried turning off and on the setting for autoplay, and tried a new browser (Chrome, I'm usually on Opera) with no success. Checking the html the span tag with id "big-speaker" has the style "display: none", and is surrounded by strange "tags": <::before> and <::after>. And as for others the audio works when strengthening skills, but not during lessons.
im not sure it is flash. once i started having this problem i add new languages to see if it was an across the board problem. i cannot play sentences in french, spanish, or german. however i can play sentences in irish, OR if i strengthen skills on any language as @boringtomi noted earlier i can play sentences. not when i redo or start working on a new skill though.
