Voice Autoplay only working when Speaker is on?
Hey does anybody notice that the Voice Autoplay feature won't work if the Speaker setting is off!?! Am I the only one with this problem?
Is that surprising? I expected the speaker setting to control all sound emitted by Duo: if it's off, nothing plays, but if it's on, you can fine-tune what plays using the other settings.
In any case, off to try it. Edit: Confirmed. Turning off the speaker turns off all sound, including when you hover over a word.
Why did you turn the speakers off in the first place? What do you want to stop playing?
Basically, "speakers off" is a global "no sound" for the entire site, like turning off or unplugging your computer speakers mutes your entire computer. If you want to keep auto-play but, say, remove sound effects, you'll have to keep the speaker on, auto-play on, but turn off sound effects.
True, I just didn't want deal with the listening and writing portion questions. They slow me down on my timed review sessions in Spanish. But, I do like those questions when I'm doing any other language besides spanish.
Yeah, I wish there were a way to better adjust what kinds of questions you get. I think you can in the iOS app, but then you don't get the timed review.
Where is the speaker setting???? In the duo lingo program or in my computer?
When you hover the mouse over the down arrow next to you username you'll see something that says configuration there, that is where you can adjust your settings.
So, I decided to put the speaker setting back on and I realized how much I was missing out on not hearing the sentences spoken. I now know the importance of having this setting on and I believe no one should try turning it off.
The reason to turn it off is if you want to complete the reverse tree to your native language. It's annoying. Can't find how to do it in the app. Not sure it's possible.
