Hello Doc, I am Swiss and I am trying to learn Navajo language, and would love to know how to pronounce the words . I truely hope that there will be sometime soon a volunteer to make all the audio. But already a big thank you gor all the good work to all those who contributed!
My ancestors' language is not on Duolingo yet, but with other sources and language summer classes I have come far in it. :o)
We also have a handful of synchronized movies by now - but not as cool as the Navajo ones! :D

I: Ha, my friend Ash is so funny. We are both Yin & Yang:
I'd love to know where my other friend Yé has gone all these years.
Or WHAT was his name? HAASH?. HAASH YIN? I would like to know if the name was ye or Haash. Maybe I'll find out in the MORNING.
What is your name? Is it Haash Yin? I would like to know. Maybe the name was ye ... I guess I will never know.
HASH YI NIL YE
Yáʼát ééh abiní haash yinilyé

Yes, very odd. You'd think it'd be all or nothing! Maybe they've gotten it to work for the app on any platform now, and are still working on the web version. Either that or it's being rolled out to a few people at a time.
But! I just got my first ever "Type what you hear" exercise. I still don't have audio on anything else, but did get to hear shimasaní.
Aha! It occurred to me that "type what you hear" exercise was from early in the tree, and the rest of my questions were later in the tree (I was doing a "strengthening" review).
I just went back to the first level and tried a few exercises and THEY HAVE AUDIO!!!
So, that may be why it seems inconsistent. Only some of the exercises have audio so far. But yay for the ones that do!
I love they have navajo, but i get tripped up on some of the pronunciations, like "yinlyé" I just cant get exactly how to say it down, can anyone write out how it should be pronounced ? I am cherokee I hope they come out with more native languages to see the differences in language
