Help With Irish (It’s Me Again)

Hey! I was wondering if the audio is missing for the Irish course. It won’t work on either of my devices. ☹️

Not all the sentences in the Irish course have audio. The audio is recorded by a native speaker (which is apparently expensive and time consuming and had to be redone a few times), so some sentences have audio and some don’t.

The audio in this exercise plays for me when I press its blue button; does it not play for you?

No, it doesn't.

I only use the Web site, so I can’t offer any app-specific suggestions if you normally use the apps on your devices. If you normally use the apps, have you tried using Duolingo in a browser to see if the audio plays for you there? If you normally use the Web site, have you tried using a different browser to see if the problem might be related to your usual browser?

Not all exercises with a blue audio button actually have associated recordings; that’s why I’d suggested to medievalmaide715 that she check the exercise that was linked above, since it does have an associated recording. Does the recording in that particular exercise also not play for you?

I’ll ask you the same questions that I’d asked her. If you normally use the apps, have you tried using Duolingo in a browser to see if the audio plays for you there? If you normally use the Web site, have you tried using a different browser to see if the problem might be related to your usual browser?

I've sometimes noticed the same thing with Mozilla. Audios either take a long time to load or don't load at all. First, I'd suggest giving the audio some time to load. Like a minute.
