Norwegian not (yet) using microphone?
So far I have had six lessons (Basics/ Basics 2/ Phrases/ Food/ Animals/ Definites) form the amazing nice Norwegian course, but not have been challenged to speak a word.
Will it come later?
It's not my PC or setting: the speaking exercise is available in Spanish.
Likely once the course is more stable, it's out of our hands.
Personally I have speaking exercises turned off for all languages, as I find them a bit frustrating, but what I do instead is say all the sentences I'm presented with in the language I'm learning out loud.
This actually gives me a lot more speaking exercise, as every single sentence becomes one. :)
Well, what I do as well is speaking sentences in Google translate. When GT understands what I am saying I guess it's not that bad after all. :)
Since it's just in beta, I suppose it will be introduced later as it graduates into Phase 3.
Swedish just got audio recently, and it's been phase 3 for a while. It has some to do with beta, but more to do with Duo staff programming the voice recognition, which I imagine is not a simple task.
