The male voice in Spanish is hard to understand (and sometimes completely indecipherable)

In the last couple of weeks, a male voice has shown up in the Spanish course. He mumbles and slurs his words. Frequently the ends of phrases are cut off. There is no "slow." I've played some 15 or 20 times and still cannot make out what he's saying and when I take a guess (and it's wrong quite often) and see what he supposedly actually said, I know the words and would have gotten them if there was any way to figure out what he was saying. Most of the phrases don't have a "report" or "discuss" button so I'm posting it here. It doesn't help anyone learn if the language is completely indecipherable.

If your native language is English and you do the reverse tree, you quickly start to realise just how bad a lot of the audio is on the Spanish courses. I'm a native and sometimes it takes me 2-3 listens to understand what is being said.

I find the Spanish voices much easier to understand than the English... and not only when there are TTS mistakes like "guh,url" for girl.
