  5. Sound overhaul!


Sound overhaul!

How long will it be before we can have native speaker recordings in the lessons? I can't count how many times I've lost a heart over the computer-generated sound being terrible. The Italian woman sometimes sounds like she's in tears when she speaks. :(

It wouldn't be that big of a task, and I know there are more than enough people on Duolingo who wouldn't mind helping out! I think it would be a smart step for the site to raise the quality of its main languages, before taking on any more.

Sorry if this has already been brought up, but it's very important!

LOL. I just posted about this exact same thing. The Italian speaker is HORRIBLE! She does sound like she's choked up/about to cry/gasping for air. It is really distracting.
