Recording buggy again
I've reported problems with recording in the past, where after finishing a recording it just returns to the record button and doesn't mark the answer. The only way to progress is to skip the question, but by this point you've wasted a lot of time.
This problem seemed to have been fixed, but since the site refresh and the new type of audio question (translate on the fly), it seems to have returned. I am specifically encountering it during the new type of question.
Anyone else having this?
I'm experiencing a similar problem when having to translate from English to the target language in audio. The page just freezes and never marks my answer after I hit record. If I encounter two consecutive questions like this and the first one happens to work, the second one won't even let me record.
This has been happening to me for some time, regardless of which language I am working in at the time. I use the most current version of Chrome, have no extensions installed and have the latest version of Flash installed as well. It seems that for each block of exercises, there are one to two recording tasks that experience this exact issue; I wait for the icon in the tab to stop flashing, I click the record button, say my answer, click stop, and the browser just sits. I've waited for more than a minute on occasions without result.
Most recording exercises work, but an inconsistent minority of them do not. As already mentioned, the task has to be skipped, a heart is lost, and at times it is the last heart that is the one to be taken. Very frustrating!
It seems to be back with a vengeance. I have noticed that if you click 'Don't use microphone' (not sure the exact label), you don't lose a life and the total number of questions is now reduced. This means it's not any harder to complete than it would have been. It's still annoying having to turn the mic back on every time.
