Why does Tinycards speak the German answer when showing the English prompt?

For example it will show: "the beetle" but automatically say "der Käfer"

I feel like it is basically telling me the answer... one of the main reasons I want to use tinycards is to practice trying to recall the articles and I feel like this is basically cheating. I hear der Kafer and I just have to type out what I heard. I would like to hear the pronunciation... just after I type out the answer.

The same thing in Spanish . . . This can't be what they intended. Until recently the prompting voice would not give the answer in advance. It must be an error.

You need to change it on the deck settings - if you are creating the cards.

    I've started to build a new German deck but something is off with the sound. The female voice seems to be gone and the male voice only speaks half the cards. Are they fixing what isn't broken?

    Deck on hold...

    This is obviously some "new feature" which doesn't make any sense. There is no learning when you know what to write. Hope they will change it back to the way it was. The temporary solution is to mute the sound, but I like to hear the german pronunciation on german card.
