It was a surprise to hear el pronounced as eller liknande.

Yes, it’s a known mistake with the new TTS. It thinks el is the abbreviation e.l.. It should be like this.

Out of curiosity, if you just removed the period from the end of the sentence, would that fix it?

We've tried that and it didn't work :(

Can't you just change it to elektricitet?

No. We've tried tons of things but nothing works.

I am not sure what is correct: the text or the voice?

The text.

Also, there is no way to type Swedish characters and no word bank to choose from. (Lol, this exercise is severely messed up!)

Maybe one can just replace the question completely. I would not consider "el" to be so important that it must be included in this course.

With respect, I disagree. I think it's important enough to keep despite the extremely annoying TTS.
