Is there sound for every exercise in the Irish lessons, or only some of them? I seem to be getting sound for maybe half of them, and I was wondering if that was the way it was supposed to be, or if it's a troubleshooting issue. If there's currently only sound for some of the exercises, will it be added later?

The Irish course doesn't use a computer voice, so there is only audio for clips that have been pre-recorded.

Thank you. Do you know if recorded clips will be added at a later date for the parts that don't have them yet?

As long as the course relies on recordings, rather than a text-to-speech computer voice, there will only be audio on certain sentences. I haven't read any comments to suggest that the Irish course will be switching to a computer voice.

There are rumours that the course will have a new voice. At least since I checked.
