Recording questions problem

It happens alot, but not always. After I record my answer to a question nothing happens. (made sure a stopped the recording) it leaves me with nothing to do but to turn off the microphone or skip the question...

What browser are you using? That will help!

It happens for me too. Firefox 24 on Windows 7. Sometimes something happens if I wait for a few minutes. Also, sometimes it works if I try again a few times.

happening regularly for me with both safari Version 7.0.1 and chrome 32.0.1700.107 on a mac power book with flash version 12.0.0.44. It's extremely irritating and makes it difficult to impossible to finish lessons when using the microphone.

It happened for me a couple of times, too. I'm using Chrome. I click "Record", say what I'm supposed to, click Stop and nothing happens. My voice is recorded and I can play it, but it does not say if I'm right or wrong. When this happened, I turned off the microphone.

Reporting in... just had this happen to me as well... Continue button is grayed out after recording not allowing me to continue.. Mac OS X 10.8.5 with Chrome Version 30.0.1599.101

I'll also subscribe to this issue, happened on three questions so far and getting a bit frustrating, but I suppose I can just skip pronounciation since it's not that hard to just repeat .. and the wiggle room it gives you makes it easy to get it wrong either way.

I've been using Duo for last last month and have found this to be a somewhat regular occurrence. Maybe one in ten recordings I'll encounter the same problem OP reports. I'm using Chrome on a Mac. I've tried shutting off all extensions, which didn't help.

Same problem. Chrome (32.0.1700.107) on Mac OS X 10.9.1 - annoying, because I get stuck halfway during practice and have to start over.

In Safari Instead of taking me to Duo's site it get the following link, telling me my browser needs to be updated and I can't get past it. https://www.duolingo.com/$from_email=practice_reminder I'm using Firefox here but really I'm having this kind of trouble with all the browsers
