I do not have speakers, can I turn off sound questions?

I do not have speakers. There are several questions that require sound; if I can't hear the questions, I can't answer correctly, and then I am penalized. Is there a way to disable the sound questions? Or at least stop penalizing me for not knowing the answer?

Go to your 'settings' and set the microphone, speaker and voice autoplay all to 'off' . See if that helps. You might have to restart Duolingo after making the changes. The settings are found by clicking on your log-on on the top bar .


Agreed, very frustrating. Especially as the recorded phrases don't sound natural, so they don´t actually help a great deal.


There is no fuctional way to turn the sound off. Frustrating.
