Duolingo not responding (endless loop somewhere)

I answer a verbal question, hit CHEÇK, and then nothing, nothing, nothing. No response. I have to quit the exercise set and start all over again.

You can turn off the mic and just say things out loud without the prompt. Just go to settings (click your username where it appears in the blue bar at the top of your screen, then "Accounts"

Good luck!

That happens to me too! But I don't do it verbally, I just type it. Any other solutions?

Sorry for not being clear. I meant in your settings, turn off the mic option, not turn off your actual microphone. :)

I did that a while ago, and it is still unclear. Better but still not great. I have even reported it. Still nothing. Also, can I friend you?

Odd, if the mic option has been turned off, and you've saved the change, you shouldn't be getting verbal questions. If you mean you're getting audio questions where the computer talks to you, the long pause and nothing happens to me on the ipad. The website was not configured to work with the ipad. There is an ipad app though that should work better.

Also, try pushing the buttons again to get a repeat of the sentence out loud.

After answering a verbal question, "the long pause and nothing happens" -- that is the situation, and I am not on an iPad; I do Duolingo on an iMac.
