Timed Practice Review should include current question when timer runs out

It's annoying when I get stuck on an question during timed practice then I'm not able to see the solution when the clock reaches 0. This is particularly frustrating for a "type what you hear" where I have no way to find out what the word was that I was struggling to recognise. I don't think it should be marked "wrong" if you haven't actually submitted a answer but it should appear on the review screen regardless.

Because of this limitation my attention is on the clock instead of answering the question - I need to hit ENTER a second or two before it runs out so I can take a screenshot of the answer before it moves on to the points screen. I find myself doing this quite often.

If you could make that change I would appreciate it a lot! Cheers

That's a good suggestion.

I'm a liberal user of the "skip" button in timed practice, usually because I'm an inaccurate typist and don't want to get bogged down on longer answers. The great thing about the "skip" button is that the answers will then show up on the review screen, so I also use it once the timer is audibly ticking.

Not to burst your bubble, but people have been requesting this for years. Pittsburgh doesn't seem to care.

Ah I did think it surely must have been covered already but I couldn't find it in a search. One can only ask. :)

Not an answer to your request obviously, but you can avoid this problem well enough by skipping (I personally prefer just entering a random character since it's faster that the skip button) ahead to find an easy enough question you've got a chance to get entered before time expires :)

You get a better chance to keep on going in the same practice session and ensure you can check out your problem sentences in the review screen.
