This extension provides users with audio during Swahili lessons on Duolingo
With this extension, Swahili audio exercises on Duolingo will have audio!
Although it will NOT provide perfect audio recorded by a native speaker, it WILL provide reasonably accurate audio that will help solidify new words in memory!
The underlying engine that powers this extension is hacking on the Indonesian text-to-speech service made freely available on the HTML5 Speech Synthesis API, which means that the audio will often pronounce loan words/ particular anomalies improperly, and that it could behave bizarrely or theoretically not work altogether on some versions of Chrome. Nonetheless, when it is working properly, the audio is quite accurate and should prove to be a useful tool to those trying to master Swahili on Duolingo!
Please note, this is an entirely open-source project. Source code is available at:
