Currently if you are typing a sentence and you run out of time, whatever you entered is tossed out and you are sent to the summary page.

Even if you finished the sentence and didn't get the chance to press enter, NOPE!

Can the code be adjusted so it accepts whatever is in the input field then sends you to the summary page? Basically submit whatever you inputted in that last 1 second as a potential answer, regardless if you pressed enter or not.

What really bothers me is when I do press enter, but time runs out while the computer is processing the answer. Sometimes the internet is slow enough that I see I got the correct answer and a few seconds, but the timer is still zero so it heads to the summary page without counting my last correct answer. I'd be happier if the timer froze during processing answer times just as it does for loading times.

That happens to me too, and what's weird is everything on the screen goes completely grey except the "continue", "report a problem" and "discuss sentence" buttons... it's really odd. Then I get the crying owl and I feel sad..

Stop looking at me like that... D: I promise I'll get the answer right next time

I've never tried time practice before, but I imagine it is very annoying that you typed a sentence and ran out of time before pressing enter. I do agree (even though I've never tried it, yet again)!

Yeah, it's annoying, I made a discussion about it before. But sadly, it didn't receive any attention... :'(
