Mike won't record: New Problem (is reported) Error #2032
141002 Since yesterday, whenever there is a question to be answered using the mike, instead of the familiar blue circle that one clicks on, then speaks into the mike I get a gray bar replacing the blue circle and the message "Error #2032"
same error for me ' I change and checked as kinds of things, global setting are unreachable, can use mic on other sites http://www.onlinemictest.com/microphone-settings/ubuntu , error may point to bad file by duolingo, Will post ticket as well
Similar, the mike icon remains gray and won't activate. Firefox 32.0.3. Used to work mostly fine until yesterday or so.
Checked plugins' versions, restarted browser, disabled adblock, noscript etc. The flash plugin itself works - when right-clicking on the mike icon and selecting options, voice, i see voice activity alright.
EDIT: and now it works again. Weird.
I am having a mic problem too. My control panel shows that my mic is working fine. I can use it in other apps but I keep getting a response that says it DL can't understand me. I speak slowly and it still can't understand me. It is really frustrating when I was so excited to use DL. I am using Googe, but not Chrome.
I never got a formal reply from DL and as the problem continues on Firefox that DL really don't care. Chrome had problems too so I am now using Comodo IceDragon browser which has been just fine. Really don't understand the complete lack of concern by DL to this problem but it does not speak well for the company.
I don't think it's fair to point fingers until we have an idea of the route of the problem. I don't want to speculate too much but somehow I think it's more to do with Flash than DuoLingo. Perhaps DuoLingo don't want to give an official statement until they have some answers themselves. We all know how a statement can be misconstrued...
I know this an old thread but was able to resolve the Error #2032 on my browser (firefox 46.0.1). Make sure you've installed the Adobe Flash plugin - I believe that some browsers can run flash natively so you may not have it installed.
Where you see the grey bar stating error #2032, right click and select settings: on the privacy tab make sure to allow Duolingo access to the mike and camera, on the mic tab check that your mike is responding (when you speak you see a response). If you can't see a response here it may be a hardware issue - check the mic is attached and working in other programs.
Make sure your browser extensions aren't blocking the adobe plugin. I disabled Adblock on duolingo and disabled rules for adobe.com in HTTPS Everywhere extension. Obviously you may have other extensions running so check these.
This worked for me. Hope this helps.
