Är is usually just pronounced like e or ä so the TTS says ni e små flickor. It can be a bit tricky to hear in the beginning when it’s not focused, but you will get used to it. Det är is often de e which just blends into some sort e-sound.

As you become more proficient and your ears ”tune in” to the language, it will become obvious.

So is ni ok when talking to a group of people but a bit impolite when talking to one person?
