Pronounciation of jaune from examples

In this example Je vois un soleil jaune et une fleur jaune. the pronounciation of the word jaune is very different for the first and second occurence. The first one is pronounced with an e almost like jauné, while the second one has a silent e like jaun.

Is the word pronounced differently depending on the gender, is the speech broken (it sounds very robotic), or is it pronounced differently depending on what word it comes before in the sentence (here ... jaune et ...)?

Hi Rafael,

Thank you for pointing this out. It was an old recording and I have changed it for a better one.

Hope you like it!

Rafael, in the first instance you are hearing the 2 words ‘ jaune et…’, in the 2nd you are hearing ‘jaune’ alone.
