My Google Translate does not have an audio button:
My google translate

I made sure that the Adobe Flash Plugin is activated but I still can't find it.

Now, I can't listen to Google Translate how to pronounce a word.

Is this an issue with Ubuntu? Or is this just an updated version of Google Translate?

  • It's not an issue for all Ubuntu, it works fine on mine. what version of Ubuntu do you have? Have you tried updating Firefox? Or have you tried a different browser like Chrome? – Jeff Mar 22 '18 at 12:22
  • Does this happen only in private browsing mode (as in your screenshot) or always? – pomsky Mar 22 '18 at 12:25
  • My firefox is 58.0.2.Even if I use normal browsing, the audio button won't show up – mnjq2006 Mar 22 '18 at 12:51

    Adobe Flash Plugin isn't needed. I get the listen icon without it installed. In any case, please update your browser. Do you have any site blocker active, perhaps via your hosts file? – Justice for Monica Mar 22 '18 at 13:03
  • It's working fine on my machine so it's not an ubuntu issue. I can use it on all my browsers chromium, firefox and opera. I'm using 18.04.1 xfce. Good luck in finding and answer. – kc1di Feb 2 at 12:12
