Default speed is suddenly turtle

Since I started using Duolingo again a couple of weeks ago, the default speed for pronunciation in lessons has apparently been changed to turtle. I find this very unnatural and annoying. I guess other people apparently don't, but would it be possible to make this a setting somewhere? I really want the default speed to be the 'normal' speed.

The default speed for very early lessons is slower. Are you seeing this in later lessons as well?


Thank you very much for your quick reply! I noticed it first when I started studying German, and figured it might be a problem with the German section. Then I did a couple of Spanish lessons but now that you mention it, there too I only repeated a couple of beginner lessons instead of going straight to the level I had attained before. There probably is no problem at all then, I just didn't debug it well enough ;-) If it presents itself in later lessons I will let you know. Keep up the good work :)
