I can't hear anything?

I can't hear the voice saying the phrases when I do the exercises, which is problematic in the "type what you hear" questions. my speakers work, the volume is up, it's only on this website that I can't seem to hear. is anyone else experiencing this?

EDIT2: Yay glad you were able to resolve it by updating flash!

EDIT1: Always include what operating system and browser you're using when posting to Troubleshooting, just in case it is browser or OS specific. For example, I am using Windows 7/Chrome.

Your browser might be blocking flash (which you don't want it to do here) or need to update flash. Let us know if that works. If it doesn't, hopefully staff or a more tech savvy person will stop by.

Anyhow, if you can't get that figured out, go to your settings and turn off your mic and speakers and you won't get those exercises.

To get to your settings, hover mouse over username in blue bar above, click "settings" from the menu that drops down. Good luck!


https://www.duolingo.com/settings/account check and make sure your speaker is turned on in your duolingo settings. If it still does not work try another web browser. If it works with another browser then it is possible you have something configured wrong in your default browser. I had a problem with the flashblock add on. Duolingo needs to be white listed in it.


It's working now, I just had to download the new Adobe Flash Player. Thank you. X
