last word cut off when using microphone

almost every time i use the microphone it fails to recognize the last word that i speak. it's very frustrating! i've tried speaking more slowly and pronouncing words exaggeratedly but nothing seems to help. is this a common issue or is it only me?

OK, so for the heck of it I just thought I would try making the last word not the last word, by adding another last word to the sentence... and it worked! The last word is cut off, but it is no longer the last word. Example: de schildpad is langzaam => I say: de schildpad is langzaam langzaam :-)

Think I've got your last word !
When I try to use the darn thing it cuts off at the first sound !!! Yes, not the first word but just as I start to speak it says "I can not hear you very well" and the next try, it just cuts me off. FRUSTRATING. Before any-one jumps in, yes it has been flagged in 'Help'

Same here :-( always misses the last word no matter what. I tried speaking super fast, super slow, with well-defined silence between words, but nothing works.
