where is the speech recognition feature?

i am learning dutch and it's been missing from my settings for a long time. i thought maybe they had removed it from the dutch course, but then checked the settings in the app version and the option is still there, but i am still not receiving any speech recognition questions even when it is enabled. i want to practice my pronunciation but can't. has this happened to anyone else? is it gone for good, or is it a glitch? :(

With Swedish, the text-to-speech was so imperfect that the course creators never enabled the speech recognition in the first place. They didn't want people practicing terrible pronunciation. The setting for mic exercises never disappeared from the settings, but the exercises never showed up because they didn't exist.

Perhaps the same thing is going on with Dutch?
