The turtle button does not work in French lesson

This is my second attempt when the turtle button (speak by word) is not working. I see this in French and the German lessons (for English speakers). Why? And when to do it?

It's one week that my turtle (slow sound) button is not working too.

It has been like this for a few weeks now and is making it impossible to work on the longer sentences when you can't quite hear what is being said. Hopefully someone is working on a fix.

I submitted an error report a week ago or so, and I noticed that the turtle speed did work ONCE after that, but not lately.

My turtle button is no longer working also-- and just curious if anyone else is having this problem?- I can not complete the bars no matter how many sentences I type in correctly- it never fills up for several of the categories.

As of 1st December it has started working again for me. Magnifique! Je suis content.
