To hear a "recording" when the current Duolingo lesson does not have a recording: What I do is "cut and paste" it into Google search-' "xxx" translate' - and sometimes that brings up an audio recording either in Google Search itself or a youtube video, or some other app including Duolingo (because sometimes when a lesson does not have a recording, the Duolingo Discussion for that lesson sometimes does. Plus, Duolingo repeats the same or similiar lessons later on that might have a recording. I hope that helps.
I would personally recommend Wiktionary over Google Translate. For example: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D7%90%D7%94%D7%91%D7%94
In the first "Letters 1" Lessons - click on the "Light Bulb" icon to bring up the "Letters 1 - Tips and Notes" which has the Hebrew Alphabet and the letters in blue are the ones covered in the "Letters 1" Lessons: (I cut and paste it here - but, it loses it's format -- it will look better when you go to the "Letters 1 - Tips and notes" yourself -- I just include it here to prove that the DL Hebrew Language tree does expose you to the Hebrew Alphabet and how the letter sounds plus other tips like: The letter "vav" (ו), Articles, Connecting words, Yes/No questions, and the Verbs: to come, and to love: "לבוא" and "לאהוב". ----- Reading and understanding "Letters 1 - Tips and Notes" is crucial to understanding and getting on solid ground for the DL Hebrew Language tree - so, learn this first.

You have it if you access Duolingo by the computer. Or, if you do like me and in the cellphone, go to Chrome, on the three dots on the top right click it, ask for "computer version" and then in the same tab go to Duolingo.com That way you can do the exercises in the app but have the learning instructions in Chrome

Yes, it is difficult especially reading right to left, yes it would have been nice to have the alphabet first. Yes, it would have been nice to be given instructions before giving us words we did not learn. But, the way I look at it. Sometimes the lessons have Hebrew recordings which is nice and I would not be learning Hebrew if it was not for Duolingo. Now when they give me words or sentences I have not been instructed beforehand, I either look up the answer using Google Search, or, I just "get it wrong", and then learn from the answer that is given when you get it wrong. Duolingo has opened up a whole new world of Language learning for me. and I will "put up" with it not being a perfect system because I love learning languages, now that I can. Duolingo has shown me that I can. And because of Duolingo, I have discovered a lot of free apps on the web and videos on youtube learning languages does not mean you have to spend money. Just a little of your time every day!
The Hebrew is going in the correct direction on my computer in this discussion. In the past, I have had problems with the blue clickable sentences in the discussion going in the wrong direction, though. If it doesn't resolve itself, turn in a Bug Report to Duolingo. Tell them on what device you're doing your lessons and which browser you're using.
SwiftKey keyboard for Android allows up to five languages including Hebrew. I love it on my Android. I only wish I could have more than five languages with it, but that's a minor complaint. I can get another keyboard and switch to that for other languages I suppose.
Čovječe, pa zar je moguće da ti nije palo na pamet, da moraš sam sebi skinut hebrejsku tipkovnicu? Vidio sam da si već nekoliko komentara napisao, ali nikako da skužim, kako je moguće da ne čitaš ni jedan jedini komentar, jer bi u suprotnom vidio da ti je ona potrebna. Lijepo izguglaj kako se to radi, jer u ovisnosti od toga da li si na mobitelu ili računalu, nije isto.
Since I have no idea what device you are using, and installing it is different for different devices, all I can say is google is your friend. You can find how to install it on your device fairly easily, if you do a search for it. The same goes for virtual keyboard. Not that the virtual one works only on a PC.
The word bank is used in the lower level of the course to help people get used to writing Hebrew. As you proceed, a real keyboard is needed on your device.
