no sound! - There are many topics about 'no sound', where is the solution?

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/pcunix

I had this and it turned out to be a firewall blocking access to the sound files on Duolingo's site! Just one more thing to check: in your browser try to access http://static.duolingo.com/tts/es/sentence/54e30e67bb809d8b5e899599216fc023 (for example). If you cannot, that's why your sound isn't working.

You did the only valuable answer in this thread! :) I have this problem with Firefox and I suspect also just like you that it can be the firewall. I tried www.dictionary.com which has the same kind of audio file I think. I tried with Internet Explorer and it works so It might be also some Adblock thing. I will not remove Adblock as it is so useful.

Same issue as of February 28th 2017 - the lesson starts well, but in he middle of the lesson the sound to "write what you hear" sections do not load - this is true for both the normal and the slow voices, and it makes it impossible for me to continue the lesson(s) as further lessons are locked until the actual one is solved! (Abstract Objects 1, stuck at lesson 7, but there were some errors in lessons 5 and 6 as well) _ NOT ACCEPTABLE!

Ran into this issue when upgrading to the latest Opera (Dev 25). Opera has never supported mp3 because of patent issues, they back the open source and patent free OGG format instead. However it's odd that it works fine with Opera 12.16. This suggests that Duolingo is treating the two versions of the browser differently in some way.

IF YOU ARE USING PC go to top where there is (duolingo,home,words,discussion,username,streak,lingot,notifications)MOUSE OVER YOUR USER NAME THEN YOU CAN SEE (profile settings help keyboard shortcuts log out ) then go to settings THEN TURN ON SPEAKER FROM OFF TO ON THEN CLICK SAVE CHANGES.

Dualingo that is sinister and EVIL. explicitly disabling sound when a anti tracking extension is installed and enabled. the sound downloads are not blocked just not being played. Now i definitely won't disable it or certainly pay anything.

Well, a temporary solution is to go into your account settings and change the speaker setting to "off". Then you won't get any listening exercises.

I had this problem with my headphones. I was having low volume only for the speech sound. All the other duolingo sounds were playing with the correct volume. I tried other browsers and restarting the computer. It did not work. Finally I tried to remove the audio jack and insert it again. For some reason that I cannot explain It worked.

sounds like...(no pun intended) this has been a problem for some time now. Getting thrown back to the beginning because of this technical problem is extremely annoying and TIME CONSUMING. If the sound can't be fixed in the near future, perhaps a work around would be to make the skip button available without penalty when sound is a part of a test or exercise. Just a suggestion.

Okay, restart your browser and start a lesson. If this persists, a windows within dueling will popup claiming that it can’t play sounds. It says Flash may have crashed and it said the reload the page. When I did, it started working again. Also, you may want to look in the “Troubleshoot” area of Discussion for help.
