Audio changes in Arabic? - Lesson "Alphabet 4" (jadaj and duuz)

I submitted that the audio after the latestet change (31.08.2019?) now sounds wrong.

I hear "jabaj" instead of "jadaj" and "duuez" instead of "duuz"

I am new to Arabic so I don't know if it is right or wrong, but it sounds different than before. There is no possibility to comment it (only submit).

they have ruined the audio files, perhaps by replacing them. just tell mods.

the pronunciations in many files that i reviewed are wrong now

Please flag them within the course. I didn't know about audio change so I didn't notice.

Same here. I just came back to the course for a complete review after a month, and I was taken by surprise.

Reverting back to the original audio would be a solution for the time.

I noticed the same thing as I was going through the lessons. After I completed all of the lessons and started back through again, I noticed some errors in the audio in the first lesson testing out of Lesson 1, and wrote a comment about it. The first time through, I didn't know about the discussion group and how to report errors like this. I hope they will correct the problems.

I don't know which pronounciations are correct now, after the audio changes. For example: جور "juur" or "guur"? Are both acceptable? -- I need to say that overall I liked the previous audio "sounds" better.

Wow! Duolingo managed to make EVEN MORE of a mess of the already messed-up audio?! Way to go green owl!

There has been a massive and positive improvement to the English/Spanish since the overall upgrade — the Arabic however should be totally scrapped and redesigned.

I just want to forget I ever took this course...
