I listened to the audio several times and compared it with what is written in the text..... no chance that I would have ever guessed what she is saying :-) she is sooooo fast. I wish there was a slow-down-button

A bruidhinn nas slaodache button would be wonderfully useful.

This is only possible for courses that use a text to speech engine unfortunately.

i think part of it is that the 'a bheil' sounds like it ends in a 'ch' sound. I presume this is pronunciation local to a particular (group of) islands, but it is a little hard to pick out if you're not reading.

I agree. I find this person hardest of all to hear in recordings but this one defeated me too.

Defeated. Even after several listens I could not get the name
