Slowed speech

Has anybody noticed that slowed speech option doesn't really slow down long words.
For example, "Jag tycker om brandmän" becomes "Jaaaag tyyyyckkkeerr oommmm brandmän". Or is this just me thinking it is slowing down the wrong words?

Slowdown will pronounce the words more individually and with a pause in between them, but not necessarily slow them down.

I have a question regarding using slowed speech - does it make skill decay faster? I know about mousing over translations, but how about this? Thanks in advance!

That's a question duolingo mods rather than us course mods can answer, but I find it hard to believe that would be the case.
