Whenever new voices are added, the setting that disables listening exercises is reset. That comment was very old, we have new voices now.
I listed this sentence in November as a sentence that should be considered to have homophones: "napiszę" and "napisze". Although generally there is a bug (you don't receive a 'you made a typo' messages in listening exercises), for this particular sentence accepting "napiszę" is expected behaviour. Without a subject pronoun, both variants should be considered correct.
P.S. I appreciate the screenshot, we'd love it if more users proved what they say with screenshots.
That's very strange, audio exercises are blocked. But then we also know of sentences that were deleted but still appear sometimes...
Unfortunately, we cannot do anything more about it. We cannot accept "napiszę", because it would then be accepted as a translation of "He will never write", and that would be obviously wrong...
That is a very interesting theory... what about context? In real life, you would know whom we're talking about, would you use "on, on, on" in every sentence? In a language that hates repetitions and every Polish teachers marks repetitions in red in any text we write in school?
But given that Duolingo exercises have just one sentence, we would never be able to teach that subject pronouns are usually omitted, even for 3rd person. I mean, I understand your view, it may seem unclear, but if we don't have such sentences, people would be really confused when confronted with a real text which wouldn't have "on" in every sentence.

That is incorrect. I mean, if you heard this sentence and there was no context, then "nie napisze" (he/she/it will not write) and "nie napiszę" (I will not write) sound the same. But it's written here, and "napisze" without a tail/ogonek on the last letter definitely does not mean "I write".
