        Juan! You are a gift, my friend, After searching endlessly for an answer - you had it! I tried triple-clicking, but did not get slower. However, once you double-click, at least in the current session, the audio remains slower. Thank YOU!!

        Is it possible to have variou speeds when listening to the speech translation? This would be ideal to be able to listen to the tones and correct pronunciation for Chinese simplified.

        Please code in a variable speed slider to adjust the translator output.

        Slow down the speed at which the Portuguese female translator speaks. It's so fast it's incomprehensible - so why have it unless it work properly. Thanks

        HEYYY........, I just discovered that if you make double click in the audio icon in the Google translator, the speed of the voice it is significantly reduced.
        So, it is possilble obtain an add to manage the speed.
        It is still missing a convenient command: remarking or lighting the word which is being mentioned.
        Sure Bing Translator Team, can get it.

        It is more than a useful idea. It is very difficult or impossible to understand the voice at the current speed for english students.
        For example think on people who spend many time working or studing with internet and be able to read and write in english but can not follow the rate of the speaker.
        Imagine if those people could copy theirs texts and hear them while working or studing
        I encourage to add the mentioned option.

        Be able to slow down the audio readout or speed it up. Different languages have different speeds.

        I am learning French at a basic level and the speed of the translator makes it difficult for me to replicate and distinguish the word sounds. A slower translation would be very beneficial at my level of understanding.

        Allow slowing of the translation sounds so that the individual syllables can be detected. It would be very helpful for Korean or Spanish or Italian which are very high speed vocalizations. This would also be helpful to language learners.
