Pronunciation of the word "de"

Hello Duolingo, I'm a bit confused. I've been taking these Babbel lessons in Swedish, and they taught me there that the word "de" (they) is pronounced as "dom". Is this true, and does the Duolingo bot just pronounce it the wrong way? I know the language is in beta and this might be something that has been mentioned already, I just couldn't find an existing thread about it in the latest post. Thanks!

You are right, this is a problem of the current TTS (voice). The team is trying to find a solution, here is the official welcome (to beta) message that mentions this explicitely: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5522374
