PRONUNCIATION - REVISITED

I confused my question the first time, re "Werkzeug". I know it is a neuter noun because "Zeug" is neuter. But I clearly heard the lady pronouncing it as "WARKZEUG". That is what confused me.

You are probably hearing the longer A sound because in German there is no hard r. Tough to say without hearing it though.
