  • Update on Lenovo Yoga N23 Chromebooks

    We posted an announcement earlier reporting that AIR had received several reports that Lenovo Yoga N23 Chromebooks freeze when an ELPA21 Speaking test is administered on the Chromebook. We now have an update on this issue. The cause of the issue has been traced to some code in the Chrome operating system. Google expects the issue to be fixed with the release of Chrome OS 65 on March 13. Until Chrome OS 65 is released, the ELPA21 Speaking test should not be administered on Lenovo Yoga N23 Chromebooks. This issue only affects Lenovo Yoga N23 Chromebooks. We have not encountered any issues with other brands of Chromebooks.
