Suggestion for "Translate this Text"

I have a suggestion for an improvement to the "Translate this Text" questions. On those questions, the Irish text is written out and the student types in the English translation. The improvement would be to add a button that would allow the Irish text to be heard in addition to being seen.

Being able to hear the text spoken while reading the sentence reinforces the phrase two ways.

The button could either be on the page itself or just displayed with the answer.

(I'm posting this about Irish, but it may apply to all languages.)

I think this is part of the fact that Irish has limited audio—because it's recorded, rather than being TTS like the other languages on duolingo. The audio just isn't available for every sentence.
