Possibly wrong audio?

I was doing my vocabulary lessons and got to the word 幼年時代. The female voice automatically played and it really sounds like she’s saying ねんしょうじたい or something . The male voice has the correct audio though. Is this the case for everyone?

I think you’re right! 年少時代?

All resources I could find on Google are in Chinese (zh-tw), in reference to the Richard Linklater film Boyhood.

Weird. Guess I should send an email when I’m done with my lessons then.

Yep, this one’s also on our list to re-record, thanks!

This sounds more like けんしちょう to me:

I don’t know which one of these is correct:

also:

I tend to think that Kyoko is correct here and Kenichi is wrong. Are they both correct?

You could just check the pitch accent on Weblio. :stuck_out_tongue:

Perhaps unrelated to what others are experiencing in this thread, but I am having issues in which the first portion of Kyoko’s audio is cut off and I only hear the last one or two syllables. I’ve tried multiple browsers and configurations, but was still able to reproduce this issue.

I’ve had similar problems on WaniKani. Usually it sounds different between the first listen (after page load) compared to subsequent listens.

I usually have this problem when using certain Bluetooth speakers or headphones.

one more to the list, @JenK
maybe it is just me, but Kyoko’s 報じる sounds like “ho:jiju”.

https://cdn.wanikani.com/audios/21523-subject-4091.ogg?1547884578 - Kennichi sounds right
