Supposedly they're recording it. As of 3 months ago.

That's sad... I'm so fascinated about Celtic languages and I really wanted to learn Irish

Which dialect are they recording?

I have no clue. They haven't been very forthcoming with details. Though whether that's because they don't want to be, or Duolingo won't let them I don't know.

Good news! They've got the new audio and they're listening to all 3500 recordings of it. So I can't see how it could be any worse, haha.

I can't figure out if you're being sarcastic here, or serious, or a combination of both.

Serious. I think part of the major flaw with the last one is that they only got to listen to 10 of the recordings, so they missed the worst of the mistakes.

Right. Now that you point it out I remember that. I think what they said is that didn't get to listen to all of them and based the decision on the few samples they heard that were supposed to represent the whole thing.

Do we know when it'll be implemented?

They need not only more recordings but also the slow versions of the dictation exercises.
