Yes, same for me. I reported it but as I'm not allowed to comment in the "report dialogue box", they will have to guess what it is I'm reporting. If only there was some way I could actually type out what the reason for the report was. Ah well, good old duo, infuriating at every step :)
Sound problems are sometimes due to the following issues which were highlighted to me by the duolingo team a while ago. I quote their reply:
Happy to help. There are a few reasons why this might be happening. It’s possible that you have an outdated version of Flash installed, you installed browser extensions that block Flash (i.e. Flashblock), or that Flash crashed.
Here’s what I suggest you do: 1. Try reloading the page in your browser. 2. Try quitting and restarting your browser. 3. If 1 and 2 don’t do the trick, update Flash Here’s a helpful link to get you on your way: http://www.adobe.com/go/EN_US-H-GET-FLASH 4. Try removing/disabling browser extensions Some tips for how to do that in specific browsers: Chrome - http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=113907 IE - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/internet-explorer-add-ons-frequently-asked-questions Firefox - http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/disable-or-remove-add-ons#w_how-to-disable-extensions-themes-and-plugins Let me know if this helps you!
Hope this helps you.
These "sound" problems only happen to me on Italian and occur every single time I try to slow play the sentences. There are these heavy breaths that frequently punctuate the beginning and end of the words. This does not happen at all on any of the other languages I've learned (French, German, and Spanish), and given that these problems apparently cause problems for many people, I can only conclude that the problem is on duolingo's end and not ours.
Polyglotta You're right about the "una" sound, however, this is not the place to report. After you check your answer, at the bottom of the page on the left it says:Report problem. Click there and you'll get a pop up with a few choices and also a space to write if you want.
