  5. Does the "slow" dictation opt…


Does the "slow" dictation option go away at a certain level?

I'm up to Adverbs-3 in French, and suddenly the slow option for the dictation doesn't work. Is this by design, or is there a glitch with the French lessons? My husband has encountered the same problem. Thanks.

This is happening in many courses this week.

It's happening to me in French, Portuguese, and German, but not (yet) in Spanish, Italian, or Swedish. It seems to be spreading, though -- it started with just French!


Slow playback isn't working for me either in French


I have not noticed this yet and I am a slow learner.


The slow option works for me on both the FR-Eng and Eng-Fr .

I tried adverbs-3 and it is working.


It wasn't working for me in German. I switched to Welsh where it was working and when I went back to German it was working again. Seems like a bug to me.


I've had the same problem - my slow speech option is no longer working. Also on my iphone I've been zapped right back to the beginning and lost all achievements - it doesn't know me any longer! Is there some glitch in the programme? It is very infuriating.
