  5. Let Us Stop Recording Manually


Let Us Stop Recording Manually

In Chrome, the audio exercises are different from that of other browsers, it's also stricter. Now I'm fine with the strict part, but what frustrates me is that the recording just randomly stop before I can finish saying the sentence. I hope this can be fixed soon! Again, thanks for all the hard work, Duolingo team!

You might want to post this in the troubleshooting forum.

This is different than using other browsers? That's odd. I wonder whether Chrome--whether it's your install, an extension, or something along those lines--is actually just handling audio in a different way than your other browsers. Have you been able to do any experimentation to see whether that's the case? What else have you tried as far as troubleshooting the audio?


I get the same probem on my iPad using Chrome, it is also the same with the app so it may not be browser dependant, although I have not tried it on Safari.


If you've ever used Duolingo with Chrome, you would notice that they have a different speaking exercise in Chrome. Whereas you only have a big microphone button in the middle, in Chrome you have a button on the left, the sentence on the right, and the words that you speak are added to the line below the sentence as you speak them. My guess for the reason that it's only in Chrome because they need to use Google's voice recognition service, but I'm not sure. The point is, the speaking exercise is different in Chrome, you can check it out if you want, and Duolingo has written a post about the speaking exercise in Chrome: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1880538


I've only ever used Chrome (and the iOS app) for Duolingo, so this is news to me. Thanks for the info!
