turtle for audio problems

So I've noticed the turtle button doesn't give me a slow version of the speech it doesn't give me anything and if I try to skip because I can't hear it the button in the bottom says "can't listen now" and when I click that even if I leave the field blank it says I passed it and gives me something like "they will be back in 1 hour" https://i.imgur.com/xEoQX3a.png here's a screen shot of what I mean

It has failed to work for a couple of weeks now. What's the word Duolingo?

I also have the same problem. The button to hear the slow version of the sentence doesn't work. It is only in Portuguese. I works fine in Spanish. Can we get an update on this? It appears it isn't just me and it's only in the Portugues.

I am also experiencing this audio problem in the French course....plus I have been getting a message at the bottom of various questions saying that "listening exercises will be available in 1 hour" , very peculiar! 25/11/17

I agree it's a bug. I doubt if they eliminated it. The people that work on DuoLingo are doing it a volunteers and not making any money. So we have to cut them a little slack. A couple of weeks seems a bit unusual for this type of problem. BUT....it would be nice if they could just post a message somewhere globally for all to see so we know what's going on. You know like they do with posting the progress of a new language they are working on. Then again aren't they having ads on here now? If so then they are making money now.... :)
