Request for Android app to use Klingon TTS Engine

As the author of a Klingon Text-To-Speech Engine on Android, I have gotten several requests for better integration with the Duolingo app. Unfortunately, I can't really do anything from my end. On the mobile browser version of Duolingo, if the user highlights a piece of Klingon text, the pop-up menu allows it to be sent to the Klingon TTS to be spoken. However, this is rather obscure, and it also does not work in the Android app, which prevents highlighting.

I'd like to request the developers to use the Klingon TTS engine on Android. As this link illustrates, using it isn't difficult at all.

We suggested that to them, but they seem to not be interested in using a TTS other than the commercial product that they have contracted. In any case, you are preaching to the choir here (since only the contributors and users participate in the forum and Duolingo staff do not). Maybe submit a bug report? https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204728264-How-do-I-report-a-bug-


Okay, I've filed a bug report.
