A question about one of the above sentences

In the sentence above that says "Elle a une petite voix: on l'entend peu", why is that translated as "She has a small voice: We don't hear her much". I would have thought that "on l'entend peu" would have translated to 'we hear her much'. Would you please explain this? Thank you. Catherine

This question relates to:
French lesson "Bien, mal, mieux, moins, peu (irregular adverbs)"

Bonjour Catherine - Peu means little, so "on l'entend peu" can be translated as either "we hear her little" or, more idiomatically, "we don't hear her much."
