Why there is no sound?

    Hi. I just started the Esperanto tree, but sometimes I got no audio. I want to know how to pronounce the words, but without audio it becomes a little difficult. I checked the settings already, everything is correct. I tried on Firefox and on Chrome and the same happens on both.

    Is anyone having the same problem?

    I have the same problem but only for certain sentences.

    There is no audio for individual words and some sentences.

    The Esperanto course doesn't use TTS (text to speech) the way other courses do. They had to record a person saying the sentences, but because of that they don't have recordings for everything. As I understand it, every word is recorded somewhere in the course at least once, but not all sentences have audio to go with them.

    Fortunately, pronunciation in Esperanto is completely regular, so it should be pretty easy to figure out how to say the words.

    If you want, you can put Esperanto words into Google translate and hear them pronounced, but the voice is really robotic.

      Same for me, maybe there is no sound?
