        Please type in the characters you see below to continue translating.

        It doesn't work.

        What is defined as 'higher than normal traffic'? Translator is something that is generally not used regularly, so any use of it would generate additional traffic

        I speak English and thought this was a nifty tool for navigating in a country that I do not speak the language in. Now I am getting the same captcha thing everyone else here is getting. I hope this tool is not broken!

        Same problem for me AGAIN!
        I reported it to them last time and it worked fine for a short while, now just keeps telling me to input the code over and over again.

        best advice - GO TO CHROME!

        Please fix this problem, it is supposed to translate for goodness sake, stop telling me you have detected higher than normal traffic.

        Yes, I am fed up with it too. I'll drop Edge completely if you don't fix it very quickly!

        Do you actually read the comments? Only I'm having the same problem and it will not accept the characters I've copied. I have tried every means possible. As for the speak the words, I understand a Scandinavian speaker better that your electronic voice!! Back to Google methinks!

        I agree with comments below, load of rubbish, get rid of the "we detected a higher than normal traffic from your computer..message

        These messages are getting silly - every page requires verification

        I have attempted numerous times to type in the characters (correctly) but the message then tells me that it is incorrect (but fr sure I am doing it correctly. When I attempt audio it speaks in a non English language, please help me.
