Speaking exercises?

I was wondering if there are speaking/pronunciation items for Gaelic like the ones for, say, German, or if I just haven’t found them yet.

If not, is that a plan for the next iteration?

I asked about this before. Currently there seems to be no Gaelic speech-to-text engine available, which is a prerequisite for speech exercises. As far as I understood, the speech exercises work by transcribing your spoken answers to text and comparing the results with the original text. Without a stt engine, this is not feasible. So unfortunately there won't be any speech exercises available in the near future.

Oh, I see. No problem. I just wondered if it existed and I hadn’t clicked the correct option, or something like that.
