Pronunciation of de, dem

Just a heads up, the pronounciation of de and dem is identical. Very rarely would any swede pronounce them the way this computer voice pronounces them.

Listen to these two (you must scroll down to the swedish words first)

It's a shame the TTS trips up on this one word... it's a pronoun. The developers of the TTS should have seen this one coming.

We have been having issues with the TTS for some time now and we are having discussions with the Duolingo team about replacing it.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

That's good news, thank you! It doesn't bother me very much. I'm just concerned about new Swedish learners, like my friend at work.
