    They give the pronunciation as /t/ for both British and American English here:outer adjective - definition in British English Dictionary & Thesaurus - Cambridge Dictionary Online
    outer adj - definition in American English Dictionary - Cambridge Dictionary Online

    Sometimes in connected speech /t/ can become /d/, but that doesn't mean it happens all the time.

    Please give your threads more helpful titles. 'Ask for help' tells us nothing. "Pronunciation of 'outer'?" would have been useful for this.
