No sound when clicking the little speaker

How come that the speaker don't function when you click on it? I would like to here the pronouncements of the words when i am exercising. It is as a flamisch belgium already difficult to learn hungarian from english. Why is there no course from dutch speaking to hungarian?

regards, Bohanon

Well , to create that course Duolingo needs some volunteers who speak both Hungarian and Dutch. Not all the words have the sound, but every word should be pronounced somewhere in the course, I would hope. Meanwhile, I use Forvo.com to listen to some pronunciations of words. https://forvo.com/languages/hu/

A nice thing to add in the Beta version would be the spoken outcome if your answer is good. Now you put in a answer and the green comment is on, and that's it.

I speak my answers into my mic, so if my speech is good the device understands me and the words appear with accent marks too. Sometimes I have to make corrections but then I practice saying the sentences over and over. This is in the app on my iPad. I have several languages on my keyboard. DUO knows when it wants me to translate to Hungarian and when to write in English.

I had already done the tree by typing so I had learned to spell. Hungarian is pretty phonetic so it is not so hard. Saying long words is much harder because you have to see the parts that are sandwiched together.
