What is wrong with recording
Hi my recording function does not work but works with spanish 123 what is wrong?
I have read a few posts with people who have similar problems. It seems like it might have something to do with the web browser because unlike other programs, I think duolingo uses flash. You might have install chrome or safari or something. I have no trouble using my microphone and I use safari.
Here is a link to another similar discussion.
I hope you can figure it out!
Since Duolingo works with Flash, it is necessary that you authorize Duolingo to have access to your microphone in the Flash privacy settings. To do so, go to the following link http://j.mp/10jCImV
Select duolingo.com from the list of sites and choose "always allow."
Once you've done this, make sure you also have the microphone enabled in your account settings at http://duolingo.com/#/settings/account
Finally, close your browser and open it again. Now you can continue practicing and learning.
I experience it in both German and Spanish, Level 10. I reported it so many times as an audio error, and then by contacting Support that I finally gave up. I've learned to work around it. I must really love Duolingo!
Everything in a lesson works fine and then suddenly I can't hear a sentence at the normal speed but can hear it at the slow speed. Or I can hear the slow speed but not the normal speed. Then the next exercise will be perfectly fine. This morning for Spanish I couldn't hear something I was asked to repeat, so I just recorded it anyway. (I got it correct without being able to hear it :)) Then I was able to hear my own playback, just not the example.
This is a new phenomenon. I never experienced it before, even with the microphone turned off.
The same problem exists. I just now downloaded a new Flash Player, allowed Duolingo, checked my mike settings on Duo. I have Safari 5.1.9 and Flash 11.7.700. I just reviewed "Family". For "my brother and I have a bird"in German, there was no sound for the general sentence, but each separate word was spoken when I put the cursor over it. The rest of this particular lesson worked fine.
