Really? From my experience, the sentences are already quite comprehensible. The only issue I'm having is differentiating between personal pronouns like "ni", "mi", "vi", but it's not about the recordings, but an issue in Esperanto itself - the pronouns are too similar.

Also, recordings in Esperanto come from an actual speaker, not a speech generator, so it's not that easy to edit them.

In theory, you're supposed to be able to hit CTRL + SPACE and get a slower recording. But, that feature seems to not be working.

You should try dealing with that while also having hearing loss and tinnitus. It really sucks.

I have the same issue with some of the shorter words, like pronouns. Sometimes it is difficult to hear which is being said. I imagine in a full conversation that would be easier because you would have more of a context to base it on.
