Words not always pronounced on hover-over

I notice that in the other languages I've been learning on DuoLingo, in mmost exercises, the words are always pronounced out loud in all exercises, when I hover over them with the mouse.

In a lot of the lessons, like translating from English into Russian, it only shows the written Russian word, it doesn't pronounce this.

Is this a glitch, or is this something that hasn't yet been completed? I find this feature helpful to hear words that I am trying to hear over and over again.

I think it's more important in Russian than in other languages because I'm trying to learn a new alphabet and I need as much reinforcement as I can get.

If you mean what I think you mean, it's because Russian seems to use less words than us, and they are purely "auxiliary" - if I spelled that right :)


No, this is not what I'm getting at. I'm talking about main words, like nouns and verbs and things.

In some of the exercises, it speaks the sound out loud when you hover over the Russian word. But in many exercises it isn't doing this.


I haven't been having that problem, it may just be because it's still in Beta.
