There seems to be a difference between the male and female pronunciation of "agus" here


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/johnrjjj2008

Seeing it in all the questions so far... The male voice uses harder consonant sounds like I'm used to with English, the female has a lot of soft/silent ones that get confusing, like when I try French

I think the difference in pronunciation depends upon the area the speaker is from. (to•may•to / to•mah•to)

Yes it sounds like the male says "ahgus", and the female says "aye-us". Wondering which is correct. I also noticed this with the word good; it sounds like the male says "vah" while the female says "mah".

How do you insert the accent from a qwerty keyboard in Duolingo?

You should be able to hold down the appropriate key to get a pop-up selection of accented variations. So, you'd hold down the "u" to choose the ù with the number 3 key.
