Sounds for single words, during lessons, not working (German and Spanish)

When I am doing a lesson (German or Spanish, from English), the sounds of the single words are not working anymore. Last week, when I put the mouse over any word, the sound any single word would come out. Now it is not working anymore. I have to listen all the sentence. But a lot of times I want to listen to that single word only, to train only that word.

Same for Russian (from English). Please someone in DL development team put back this very useful feature to learn. Thanks

This happened to me. I somewhat know how it happened. From the lesson (not the quiz), and for the first time,I clicked on a phrase. This brought up a separate small playback window, which seemed a little odd. When done, I closed the window. Since then, all mouseover words (which were fine before) have stopped working. The rest of the audio, for quizzes, is fine. I have tried restarting the Chrome browser, but that hasn't fixed it. Then again, seeing that this problem is recent based upon the timestamps here, did a software update go out that just happened to coincide with my events?

Same issue for the Romanian from English as above. The program does not repeat the single word when hovering over the word. It will only repeat the sentence. Hope this issue can be fixed. Thanks for all you do.

The sentence "Menschen essen Tiere" in the German from English tree also doesn't work.
