Is the pronunciation of "djup" correct? It's very different from the "dj" in "djur".
I don’t know which TTS you’ve got, but it sounds fine with the new one. Pool however should be pronounced with a o-sound and not an å-sound.
Yes, dj is always just pronounced as j in Sweden Swedish. It’s the same with djur. In Finland they pronounce the d however. Same goes for the combinations gj, lj, hj.
As a clarification: in Finland Swedish the d is indeed pronounced before j, but not g, l or h :)
Is the pronunciation of "poolen" correct, here? It sounds like "Polen" to me.
It's incorrect, she says Polen ('Poland').
polen as in the North pole is also pronounced like poolen.
That confused me. I wondered why Poland wouldn't be deep. Might be a good idea to disable listening excercises for this sentence.
I thought we already had, but apparently not, thanks for letting us know. Also it's really odd that the voice says Polen here when it's OK on the other sentences with the same word. Probably because it's the only one with a capital P, but still… I sense someone wrote a poor algorithm somewhere.
