Some Irish sentences have missing audio (access denied)
I've been learning Irish with DuoLingo for months with the iOS app, but there has always been the problem of missing audio from some of the Irish sentences, even though the little speaker button is there to play the audio.
I've done a network packet capture, and it would appear that for the ones that don't work, when the audio data is being requested from the server an 'access denied' response is being returned.
For example http://static.duolingo.com/tts/ga/sentence/7ee62a40f3a4e11cedd331b63ed06149 (Tá an hata agam) returns 'access denied', whereas this sentence works fine: http://static.duolingo.com/tts/ga/sentence/e7142f2c8e18457cbe59de490f189163.
Looks like something needs fixing with the app/course/backend rather than an issue with my iPad. It would be nice if it could be sorted.
If that is indeed the case, then the bug is that the speaker button is being displayed when no audio exists. Most of the sentences without audio do not display the speaker button. If the speaker button is there, I expect to hear something when I press it.
However, this means that not all sentences have audio.

Yes, I am aware of this, thanks. My understanding is that if there is a speaker button next to the sentence, I should be able to press that button to hear the sentence. When there is no speaker button, I do not expect to be able to hear the audio. The issue I am highlighting is that there are sentences with a 'speaker' button where no audio is played automatically, and no audio is played when I press the button. This must surely be a bug rather than by design.
It is in this specific case that I am seeing 'access denied' at the server end.
