Microphone Questions Freezing

Has anyone else been having this problem where the microphone questions on DuoLingo don't work, so they have to turn the microphone off? If so, is there a way to set it back on the right track?

It used to happen occasionally, but now it's so frequent I have my microphone turned off most of the time when using DuoLingo on the website.

I used to have issues where the mic couldn't pick up my voice, so I increased the mic's input volume significantly and fixed that. But yeah, now I'm getting behavior where the mic spins a gray circle and immediately goes to "I can't hear you very well." I haven't tried restarting my browser or computer--and I really should anyway. Sometimes restarting the browser does help with weird plugin or memory-related issues like this might be.

For the record, Mac OS X.9.5, Chrome

This isn't exactly the same thing as that. I'll hit the button and say the thing and then stop it... But nothing happens. It just sits there. Not even not-grading, but like I never recorded anything. And it just does it repeatedly til I turn the mic off. I guess I'll restart the browser, though.
