Can't input on the console:


Here’s my code:

print ‘Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!’

Start coding here!

original = raw_input(“Enter a word:”)
print original

When I do this I get the “Enter a word:” prompt with the flashing cursor, but then it won’t let me input anything. I get the rotating circle instead. Have tried F5 and have tried rebooting. Any suggestions?


I’m also having this problem on this lesson, but a couple exercises in, but it started doing this same thing at the initial prompt.


me too , same problem


Same problem. Mine types “SCT” as the input automatically as well.


Hi there!

I too had this problem but I just kept on refreshing the page and it solved the problem. Just be careful down the road when refreshing, you may lose parts of your code and will have to do it again.


Hi All,

Same problem here!


Same problem here, too.

OR! I had the correct code on lesson 8 and it wouldn’t accept it after reloading over and over. I finally got irritated and accepted it’s “get the correct code” prompt after it wouldn’t accept my code and it didn’t change a thing. So frustrated.


I have found the solution. Try using a different browser like google Chrome?


Did use different browsers but still having the problem


Did you try refreshing the browser? Worked for me (Firefox)


Yeah refreshing is the only way to work around this. So that’s what i just keep on doing
