The slow audio on rice sounds completely different than the fast one. Which is right? The fast one has ζ sounding like a z. The slow one it sounds like an h.

    A ζ is always a z sound, no matter what. It might be lighter as in zebra with certain vowels, or thicker as in measure but it is always a z sound. I'd say this one is like zebra. Does this sound clearer?
