Having Trouble Finding AUDIO Pronunciations In Spanish

[color=red][/color]question Hello All!
I am happy to have found this site thanks to a random 'Google' search this afternoon. It seems like it will be very helpful, as well as educational--a good place not only to refresh my memory, but to learn something new each day!
Unfortunately, I seem to have encountered a problem within my first few minutes after registering. My five-year-old daughter, Peyton-Leigh, is VERY enthusiastic about learning Spanish. However, good ol' Mom isn't always her best "resource" when it comes to translating words from English to Spanish red face
Well, when I typed in the word she wanted to know, 'daughter', I of course had no problem getting the answer, 'hijo'. However, I am looking for an 'sound' button that will allow her to HEAR the correct pronunciation of the word. There IS an audio button provided, but it only says the word in English. IS there a way--and, if so, can someone please explain HOW to change the audio button to give the word's translation in SPANISH(hopefully, on a permanent basis)?
I would be ever so greatful for any information or help someone out there might have. oh oh (I might add, I am seriously "technically disadvantaged"--a term my friends came up with to make my lack of computer knowledge sound as nice as possible! So, if there IS a very simple solution to this problem I'm having, please accept my sincerest apologies! LOL)
Many thanks in advance from myself and Peyton-Leigh. Happy Spring!

Peace~Krystyn

You typed in the word daughter and got the word hijo (son)? I'd try a new dictionary.

If you type in the word daughter in our dictionary you will get the proper word "[color=red]hija**".

A simple work-around to your problem is that now that you know that the word for daughter is hija; enter that word (hija) into the dictionary. Then you will hear hija spoken. The dictionary assumes that when you enter the word daughter that you want to hear that word pronounced, not the several possible words that it might translate to according to context.
