The audio for the "type what you hear" questions is completely off. Having a pretty hard time getting through these skills now, hope this is fixed soon.

I think this is the first time I've encountered a "Type what you hear" exercise where the sound didn't match the sentence that Duolingo expected! And it's pretty hard to get that kind of question right if they give you the "wrong" audio!

As an English speaker, I doubt I would ever say 'the blame is on me', unless some agent was specified as putting the blame on me. Perhaps 'I am to blame'.

I wrote 'it is my fault', but it was not accepted. Isn't this what the sentence means – that I am responsible? Or is the implication that I am being blamed, perhaps unfairly?

It accepted "I'm sorry but it is my fault" for me

There is not enough audio in the Irish course, particularly compared to the other languages, so it is particularly annoying that many of the audios are completely different to the texts.

I'm sorry but its my fault is also accepted - makes sense. What doesn't make sense is the way the sound files get all muddled in some sections - have made several reports

"Léigh mé faoin dúnmharú sa nuachtán, agus ní raibh mé sásta" is what she says on the tape.

"I read about the murder in the newspaper, and I wasn't happy." Very charming!

Ditto to that - there is a big problem with mismatch between sound files and text

"I'm sorry but the fault is mine.", got rejected but I think it's just too narrow a selection of right answers.

Do you really believe a native English speaker would say that??????? The answer should be 'I am sorry but I am to blame"
