No voice for Swahili

Is there no voice on the Swahili course? I'm hearing nothing, despite having checked my audio options. Thanks.

You can copy and paste Duolingo's Swahili texts in Google translate to hear the audio (computer voice)

LOL. No you can't.

Have you tried it and checked the very bad robotic voice?

I am done after my one sentence translation try for the next years! :-)

There are a few languages on Google and others (yandex, etc.) which simply have no active (good) TTS support.

Otherwise you could have used Camilo's Tampermonkey user script "Duolingo Tree Enhancer" to activate the TTS service voice from "google yandex baidu", when it is not available on Duolingo.
