More Troubleshooting Tips

1. Make sure your browser is up to date. You can check through this website to see what the latest version available is for your preferred browser and download it if needed. If you are using Internet Explorer for your main browser, we recommend switching browsers, as Internet Explorer has been retired and is no longer supported.

2. Disable any ad-blocking software or firewall blockers. Browser extensions and/or plugins are known to interfere with website functionality. Once done, close and re-open your browser and try visiting our website again.

3. Confirm with your school's IT department that our domains are unblocked <everydayspeech.com> and <cloudinary.com> where we host our content. 

4. Sometimes restarting your computer does the trick. Reset your network connection. Unplug the power to your modem and router, then plug back in and let them power up and try loading our site once again.

If this did not resolve the situation, please see below to see the troubleshooting tips for your browser.
