Ukrainian audio volume

First of all, a big thanks to Team Ukrainian for giving us this fantastic opportunity to learn their beautiful language! I've just started practicing the letters, and slowly I'm mapping the Ukrainian keyboard into my brain. :-) I use Windows, and the keyboard shortcuts for changing languages is really helpful when switching from English to Ukrainian and back again.

My only pet peeve is that the audio volume appears to be much lower than it is in all the other Duolingo courses that I've tried. I would just crank the volume up on my PC, but then the Duolingo sound effects (e.g. the correct answer jingle) are too loud. Is anybody else experiencing this problem? Is it something that could be fixed?

Imperfect but workable solution: turn off the sound effects when studying Ukrainian? I know it's not ideal if you like the FX, but it's just a thought. (I think turning off the sound effects was one of the first things I did when I started using DL ;))

Yes, the volume is low for me too. They can probably turn the volume up.

The reason is that the audio files had to be edited for noise reduction after recording. That partly influenced the volume.

The volume in the Ukrainian course is much too quiet. I have the volume setting on my laptop cranked up as loud as it will go, and it is still much too quiet. People have been reporting this for a long time—when will a solution be implemented?
