Why is there no slow playback option for Russian?

I'm just starting out in Russian, and it would be a HUGE help to hear these phrases more slowly so that I can enunciate and pronounce them better. Why are they absent in Russian but present in other languages on DL???

Thanks!

I haven't done the Russian course, but only languages that used a computerized Text To Speech voice synthesizer have a slow playback/turtle option. Languages that rely on actual recorded sentences don't have that option.

Strange, I have it in Russian, but don't have it in Vietnamese.
