Slow button

Does the slow button cease to work after your 63% German?

I need the slow button because the female voice speaks German so poorly I can't understand unless I can hear her speak slowly.

For the last two days, at least eight people reported the same issue.

Hello Roger, the slow button is not depend on your fluency in German. I think it is a bug. Please report it in troubleshooting.

It happened in French as well. Bug report sent, so the powers that be probably know about it.

It's happening to me in French, German, and Portuguese, but not (yet) in Spanish, Italian, or Swedish. I really hope it's not an A/B test.

That is possible. Maybe you are in another test group. ;-)
