sound without flash?

awesome website. my only complaint about duolingo so far is the use of flash.

flash is horrible for many technical and other reasons i wont go into here.

is there any way to use sound on this website without flash? thanks!

apparently the ipad does use flash. i changed my user-agent to ipad and duolingo still serves pages with flash applets.

my advice to the duolingo dev team:

DON'T BE A NOOB. LOSE THE FLASH!

the rest of duolingo is almost perfect. keep up the good work. this would be the best way to learn a new language if it used HTML4, unfortunately you must use unstable, non-secure, proprietary bloat-spyware to fully utilize the lessons.

I agree! The record function just won't work right on my Mac.

The DuoLingo sound works fine on my iPad and as far as I know the iPad does not support flash.
