This is an update regarding the Linguaskill Speaking test upgrade from Flash to HTML5. The Metrica system was recently updated to upgrade the technology used to deliver the Speaking test from Adobe Flash to HTML5. Linguaskill product will migrate to HTML5 for Speaking test with effect from 9 Sept 2019, 1200 GMT.
It will not be possible to launch Linguaskill Speaking Tests using Internet Explorer version 11 or older after this time.
If your centre or client is still using Internet Explorer 11 (or older), please start using the most recent version of the Google Chrome browser as soon as possible. If you are already using this browser, you don’t need to take any action.
Please note that for Speaking tests Mozilla Firefox won’t be supported after this change, but we are currently working to allow it to be a supported browser. However, in the meantime we strongly recommend all Linguaskill Speaking tests be run using Chrome.
Please note that there is no system downtime involved in this migration.
If you have any questions please get in touch with our Helpdesk here.
