No audio in Safari for listen and type in… lessons

I've been away for a week, but am just noticing this today after returning. I have only tried timed practice so far, but the audio for questions where you "Listen and type in [Spanish in my case]" never loads. I can load the slower audio, but reloading the fast audio is not successful. I am using Safari 6.0.4 on Mac OS 10.7.5. The audio works as expected on other question types.

Is this still a problem?

It's working a little more reliably now, but it is still having intermittent problems.

I'm having exactly the same problem in the french lessons. The fast audio doesn't play but the slow one does. Noticed it a couple of days ago (Thursday, Friday?) and the problem persists today. I'm also using Safari and I'm on a Macbook air.

Now it seems to be working fine. Problem seems to be intermittent.

I just did another set, and am still experiencing the same problem. I did a new lesson as well and the problem occurred there as well. I had Safari’s debugger window open tracking network requests and noticed the request for the audio is never being sent. I had maybe 1 or 2 out of the 20 List and type questions load the audio tonight.

I am also having this problem with Spanish, also using Safari. It is intermittent for me too.
