  5. Record button is grayed out


Record button is grayed out

I saw more questions of this kind but no answer. My microphone works in e.g. skype, I gave duolingo permission to access both speaker and mike, but still, no go, the button obstinately remains grayed out (well, pinked out) and the cursor remains an arrow instead of a pointing finger. I have Windows XP, and I tried using Chrome and Firefox. Anybody know why? Others having no problems?

You know I don't even see the option to record anymore even though my mic is still on in the settings. The speech recognition really didn't work well. Almost anything I said would pass.
