CAN'T RECORD VOICE! TECHNICAL PROBLEM TODAY?
UPDATE : Works just fine now, just like that! Might have been some sort of lag after all... I'm posting this because I signed in today for my usual daily practice to find out that I simply can't record anything in the Speaking exercises!
No matter how much I try to speak clearly, slowly, whatever, the site acts as though I was saying nothing - i.e. the webcam (which I've been always using for this type of exe without any notable problem so far) doesn't record anything.
I use Duolinglo almost everyday, and my pronunciation in the language I'm learning has never been a problem, either on or 'off' the website.
I unplugged and re-plugged my webcam in, I ran a test via Skype, and it turns out that my equipment works just fine.
Has this happened to anyone else today?
Is it a general technical problem on the part of the website?
Thank you in advance
PanosSpoon, I've had Duolingo start refusing to record halfway through a lesson on numerous occasions. However, it has never done it in Firefox, only Opera (browsers). The only solution I've found is to close my browser and restart the whole lesson. Well, that and using a different browser. My equipment was always working fine. It appears to be some interaction between Flash or whatever runs the recorder for Duo and the browser.
