My sentences are only read out loud sometimes?

I'm learning German and Irish at the same time, and for my German lessons, my sentences are read out loud every time, on both the app and the desktop. But for my Irish lessons, only about every third sentence is read out loud. I'm not sure what the problem is, as I've updated flash and the latest app, and there's nothing wrong with my speakers since I can hear the sentences sometimes. Has anyone else experienced this and/or knows how to fix this?

This isn't an error. Some courses, Irish among them, use recorded speakers rather than a TTS. In those cases any number of things can go wrong that will lead to a sentence not having sound.

I have this intermittently on my Spanish course. It seems to happen mainly when I'm testing out, which is really annoying. I thought that maybe it was deliberate, to prevent us from skipping through the lessons too quickly. If I leave it a day and retry at a different time it usually works ok.
