Traceback (most recent call last): File "python", line 4, in <module> ExecTimeoutException: Program took too long to terminate

I’m learning using the Python 2 program of Codecademy. I’m at the section where you’re learning how to make code for Pyglatin, in 3/11 I can’t seem to get the program to run properly.

My code:

print ‘Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!’

Start coding here!

original = raw_input(“Enter a word:”)

Error that shows up:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “python”, line 4, in
ExecTimeoutException: Program took too long to terminate.

When I compare it to the forums and the solution, it is essentially the same.

Please help.

Hello and welcome to Codecademy,

When you hit Run, do you see that blinking cursor in the console (where you’re supposed to enter a word) ? Well you won’t be able to type your word unless you click on the blinking cursor (you might have to click it a couple times as well to make it work).

So, click it, and then check if you can type your word.

Let us know how that goes :slight_smile:

Thanks, the code is working now.

:slight_smile: Hope you are staying safe during the pandemic.

Intente hacer clic varias veces donde el cursor parpadea, luego ingrese su entrada
