Mon chapeau est noire?

I got a "Listen and type in French" and I listened and typed correctly: "Mon chapeau est noire" is what the ladybot said. But shouldn't it be noir, since hat is masculine?

Why do you think the ladybot said "noire"? "Noir" sounds just the same and of course "noire" should not be accepted. If it is, you should send a feedback because "chapeau" is really masculine.

Olimo, noir and noire don't sound the same. Noire is more pronounced; in noir, the r is more faded. Also, the reason I know that I wasn't mistaken in how I heard it is that I typed the sentence using "noire" after hearing the sentence and it said that I got it correct. I looked at it afterward and realized it didn't look like a proper sentence. I'll send a feedback. It didn't have one of those "Still think you're right?" links because I typed it as it said it and it marked it correct.

Yes, I agree, the possesive takes the gender of the thing not the speaker
