the audio for "Skandinaviassa" sounds wrong

True, a native here and it sounds like "Skandineiviassa" in Finnish and we don't pronounce it like that. It's the same error as with the word "limonadia" which apparently is "limoneidia" in the audios. Did you report this phrase?

both "Skandineiviassa" and "limoneidia" are classic examples of a TTS bug. and yes, I did report the phrase

"Sweden is in Scandinavia, but not Finland." seems an equally logical translation.

The "to be" is suppressed in the same way in both languages

Why? It’s in the same zone.

Yet, it doesn't seem to bother Oulu's tourist office :'D
