on the ipad the Soguk sounds like the english work 'sew' you can't hear the g or the K. Also, what is the TTS?

So are the pronunciations on Duolingo not recordings? Their text to speech?

I know now that certain of the courses have actual recorded voices, and others are TTS.

That's really awful if that's the case, because I have experience with TTS like IVONA and it's not good for language impartation.

I'm not personally familiar with any TTS programs, so I can't speak to that.

It's from IVONA. The name of the TTS is Filiz or something like that.... I think

The 'k' sound is very subtle here. Is is common to not emphasize the last consonant sound (as in french)?

Why is 'cold water' incorrect?

I assume that would be soğük su
