The sound of the first syllable is strange...is it correct pronunciation?

The new TTS is better, but instead it makes the k sound like a g.

EDIT I'm comparing the new TTS with the really horrible one we had before as Mygrapefruit mentioned. In her comment, there's a link to a correct pronunciation of the word. Follow that and hear how it's supposed to sound.

No, this is a horrible pronunciation. Sounds like the TTS messing up. 'an' at end should be unstressed.This would be correct, just add an n to the end:

One of the most difficult things with Swedish is 'how to stress', words or syllables. The computer-voice does not seem to handle that very well. I have heard some really weird sentences so far. the crab = krabban, has stress on both syllables in Swedish: kr'abb'an.

When the word is just "crab" it pronunce: "krabba" but when it is "the crab" the word is changing as "krabban" why ?

Swedish forms definite forms by attaching a suffix to the end of the word. Usually, it's something ending in -n.

The k sound in krabban sounds like a g, making it sound like "grabban" instead.
