Recorded Welsh Pronunciations

Does Duolingo have a feature/menu where you can hear the pronunciation of a specific word? For example, if I just need to hear how "illeuad" is pronounced, but don't know which lesson it was in.

Diolch ~

I don't think Duo has that option but Welsh is a phonetic language so learning the alphabet should be a big help in pronunciation. Also there are a number of Welsh/English dictionaries available where you can hear the words spoken.

gweiadur.com has quite a lot of recorded pronunciations, including ones for y and Lleuad = y Lleuad

The best place is ivona.com, which is where the voice in the Welsh course comes from. Just look for the two Welsh language voices, choose 'Gwyneth' and then type in the word and press play.
