Rolling the r

The audio seems to roll the r a lot in roti, rusak. Is the rolling of the r a part of standard Indonesian dialect taught or not?

Yes, we do roll our r's.

Ok, do Indonesians still understand someone if they can’t roll rs?

The 'r' in Indonesian is always a trilled (rolled) 'r'.

Also air, but you do not need to roll your r.
