The machine kinda sounds like "Mon lait est noir..."

Use the slower speech because it sounds clearer ;)

oui le "b" est normalement plus prononcé.

I don't think that black wheat would be the greatest wheat...

I agree I couldn't hear the b at all. I would have translated it as milk. There is no slow speech function offered because the written form is available. Listening to this, one would think that blé and lait are interchangeable sounds.

Yes, "spearer". I agree. "b" is missed...

It didn't sound quite like 'lait' but I couldn't think of anything else it did sound like :(

Strange, I heard it quite clearly.

neither wheat nor dough are black :( What has become of the world famous french cuisine?
