Irish speaking exercises!
I just did an Irish lesson, and there were some speaking exercises — slightly strange, given that Danish, Dutch and even apparently Portuguese don't have them. Slight problem, though: when I try to say anything, it just picks it up as a stream of English words (like a problem I sometimes have with the Spanish speech recognition), however hard I try to mimic the voice. Is anyone else having this problem (or, for that matter, getting speaking exercises)?
Edit: Also getting speaking exercises for Danish. Of the two in the exercise I just did, one picked me up (after about 7 attempts), the other didn't.
Edit 2: Now getting them for Dutch. Still not being picked up, though.
Then I would suggest that you automatically re-enable microphone for everyone in the experimental group, otherwise some people would never even know speaking lessons exist. :)
I'm curious though, the web-speech api only uses the browser to get its feedback and doesn't need to request data from Duolingo right? If so in compatible browsers it should greatly improve its performance.
That is very unusual! I am yet to come across this and plain out didn't know this was possible in our course. There is a good chance that this is a bug or a once of mix up.
I was really surprised. I hope it's a bug, as the voice recognition makes it impossible to get through an exercise without using a heart refill :(
If you could get one, a screenshot would be great. This will help staff determine what's going on :)
redoes the lesson to get a screenshot Here it is. This was in lesson 4 of verbs present 1
