not recognising russian numbers

Dear Duolingo, I reported it twice I believe, but the russian voice recognition does not recognise numbers, everything else works fine! Are you able to do sth with it?

I too have issues with four, all the -надцать numbers, twenty, and thirty. I am willing to accept that I might be pronouncing четыре incorrect as I typically stutter with it, but not the rest.

If I was to speculate, my guess is that the issue is with the "дц" pair.

Maybe it's my mic, or maybe my pronunciation is off by just enough that it cannot be recognized. But I would say this is an issue with the voice recognition not being flexible enough.

This issue has been frustrating me for over a year. I have never gotten Duolingo voice exercises to recognize these numbers.

It has driven me near paranoid about how I pronounce these numbers. I have practiced the pronunciation for these numbers for almost 3 years now with a coach and have spoken these numbers to native Russian speakers without issue.

If i pronounce everything else well, I guess it is not an issue.
