No Voices!!!

I am learning klingon and there is no narration, I cannot pronounce the words. Will there ever be a narrator or is my computer not working?

September 17, 2018



The Duolingo administration decided not to provide audio for the Klingon course. The Contributors and Moderators would love to add it, but at this time, we do not expect it to be added. There is a Skill a little bit into the course which teaches the names of the Klingon letters and has a description of the pronunciations in the Tips & Notes, however, that skill also lacks audio.

If you want to check out some ideas for learning the pronunciation, check out the thread at: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/26605745

If you want to read about the other known issues in this course, read the post at: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/26778885

And finally, the only way I know of to complain to the administration about the lack of audio on this course is to file a bug report: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204728264-How-do-I-report-a-bug-


Very disappointing, I don't understand why they would even bother adding a course if they were not going to add audio. I say we bring attention to this somehow, audioless courses are not sufficient.

    As far as I know the Klingon course currently does not have audio. I understand it's something they are working on, but it isn't currently available.


    GREAT thats sad they need AUDIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    It's the same for the High Valyrian course as well. I hear that they plan to add audio for High Valyrian when it is 100% complete however I have little to no knowledge on the Klingon course. It is still in beta last I checked so they'll likely add audio one day after it is out of beta but until then you'll have to tough through it or use other sources as well as Duolingo. I'm not learning Klingon so I don't know any sites I can link to help you, sorry.


    There are currently no plans to add audio to either High Valyrian or Klingon. Perhaps it will happen someday, but at this moment the expectation is never.


    According to the creator of the High Valyrian course, there is https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/27732272

    Though this may have been changed and I am unaware of it. But thanks for informing me that Klingon is a definite no for now


    I have not been privy to any conversations he might have had with Duolingo administration and I suppose anything is possible. I read that as him saying that he wants to add audio, but based on our pushes for audio, it is clear that Duolingo does not want to add audio for courses with fewer active users.


    There are currently ten courses below High Valyrian and only Klingon without audio and Klingon isn't the lowest. They don't consider fictional languages important.
