Slow Duolingo speaking option

Hello, I'm enjoying the course but I'm finding very hard to follow the sentences spoken by Duolingo, and really frustrating when I get "knocked back" for miss hearing. I'd really like to be able to slow the speech down, like on the German course, is that possible? Thanks

The slow option is only available for courses with text-to-speech generated audio. The Hungarian course has sentences recorded by native speakers. That means the audio quality is excellent but comes with the drawback that there is no slow option. And implementing any such option is obviously not a priority for Duolingo centrally, as it has been requested many a time.

Hi piguy3 thanks very much for explaining, it all makes sense now ;-). It would be nice if the demerit rate for wrong answers to spoken translation, was bit less fierce -it's quite disheartening when I get repeated fails for mishearing, and it can take add greatly to the time to complete a module.

Your aural comprehension? That is something to be concerned about: it is important, eh, so be not proud!
