Duolingo Microphone input not working

  • I am a passionate Duolingo-user, but unfortunately Duolingo still does not work with Opera. In particular the microphone input just does not start. I have to use Chrome for that.

    From Opera 15 onwards I was hoping that it would finally be fixed, but unfortunately nothing has changed yet. In earlier versions it seemed to have been a Flash-issue (something connected to using PPAPI?) but recently not even the Flash input starts.

  • Same issue here, I am currently on:
    Windows 7 64bit
    Opera 37.0
    Adobe Flash Player
    Shockwave Flash 21.0 r0

    Mic works correctly on other sites like: where I am asked to allow the site to use my mic access and voila, works.
    But not Duolingo, it seems that Opera is unable to recognize that Duolingo website is attempting to use mic.
    No issue in Chrome.

    Is nobody else having the same problem? Or just given up and using other browser for Duolingo?

  • Yes! The same here! After a few years of not using Opera, my favorite browser looks like it's finally alive again, but Mic in Duolingo just won't work. Please fix this, devs! Switching between two browsers looks like a total... waste of time these days.

  • Yes, same problem with Duolingo so I have to use another brower; can't you fix that, please? X/
