Why is there no speaking segment in the Danish course?

I heard from someone studying Spanish that they really like the speaking component. In Danish, we can listen but there are no speaking cues. Is it coming?

When it first opened, Swedish had a terrible Text to Speech--and it was the best of the options available. So the course creators withheld the speaking components so that people wouldn't practice the terrible pronunciations. Perhaps something similar is going on with Danish?
