Pronunciation of "le raisin"

Can one of the French speakers clarify for me the pronunciation of "le raisin" as the machine voice sounds as if the word has a soft "g" or "j" (like le jaison). . . .is the correct, or merely vagaries of the medium?

Vagary in the system, I guess. It's pronounced with the french r, in the throat.
