Turn Off Spoken Words on Mobile App

It would be great if the spoken words could be turned off on the mobile app. When travelling and when on a mobile network it lags terribly and also slows down progressing to the next screen when answering questions fast. Sometimes it does even load the spoken sentence on the next screen if you're too fast.

Do you have an iphone? The same has been happening to me on the app. I turned off the speech in the settings, but it still continues to talk. It's sort of annoying when I want to listen to music while doing Duolingo. I think it might be a bug or just un-turn-off-able.

Pretty sure you can turn that off in the settings on the app? Where you can turn off your mic etc, you can turn off the "speaker" option and that should turn off the spoken word, no?

looks like the mobile app and the website share the settings, if i turn it off on mobile (with no effect) it turns of the speaker on the website as well.
