When I give a microphone answer I receive no response from the software! How do I fix that?

A question where I have to speak a phrase comes up. I activate the mic say the phrase and end the recording and ... nothing. I get neither "OK > continue", nor "Wrong > continue". It just stays there while my timer runs out. That happens specifically on the timed testings.

Is this a common problem with an easy fix? How do I fix it?

Do you have the microphone activated in the Duolingo SETTINGS? Has the microphone ever worked in DL? Try a different browser.


I do have it activated, and I have been using it for the past 4 days. It doesn't happen every time and the mic moves up and down as if it registers hearing me. Its just that after I stop the recording it does nothing with this information sometimes. When it doesn't do anything I'm stuck there until the timer runs out.
