OK, I tried to compile some links to Swedes saying "djur." Different regions of Sweden have different accents, these include a few different ones:

http://www.tubechop.com/watch/4185457 "Idag tänkte jag att vi skulle prata om djur" Southern Sweden
I hope that helps!!!
Am I the only one who hears a "v"-sound in the middle of "djur"? It sounds to me like YOOV-eh-ra. I get that the "dj" makes an English "Y" sound and the U makes an English "oo"; I can even see how the "ra"/"ruh" sound at the end is made from a slight trill of the R. But, like someone else already said, there definitely appears to be an extra syllable or something in the middle that sounds, to me, like an English "v". Can any native Swedes explain the pronunciation?
Pronunciation of the Swedish "U" in both its long and short forms can be VERY tricky for non-natives. In my experience natives can hear many more nuances than non-natives -- I remember the way a room of my in-laws laughed at the way I said the name Ulla. Anyways, in this case, the "u" is a long "u", so it gets a bit more stress than the English "oo." It is almost like how we say "eew" in English when we see something gross. So that long "u" coupled with the rolled "r", which is definitely a Swedish thing, can really extend a word like 'djur.' To me, this computer pronunciation basically sounds right. I had no trouble understanding it.
Thanks. This helps. It also seems that the voice has been updated within the past couple of months. Listening to it now, I really only hear one syllable anymore. With the sort of extended "eew" you mention and slightly trilled R at the end elongating the word somewhat. (Sounds nearly identical to the English word "you" with an extra little R trill at the end.)
