  5. Duolingo cannot hear my voice


Duolingo cannot hear my voice

Duolingo cannot seem to pick up my voice through my microphone and I have no idea why. Is there a sort of plugin needed?

My mic picks up my voice on skype, and ventrillo but seemingly not on duolingo. I can hear everything just fine.

When I try my microphone at work it seems to work on that computer..

Any suggestions?

Duolingo uses the Flash plugin for sound, including the microphone. You can check whether your microphone works with Flash here: http://www.midomi.com/index.php?action=main.mic_check . Personally I had a lot of trouble getting it to work right in Firefox with the standard Flash plugin. The simple solution turned out to be switching to Chrome for Duolingo.
