Audio problems, Cuts off half of the word

I have noticed sometimes, that the audio finishes off too early, cutting off half a word. Example, instead of saying, "I am here" the Audio says "I am her-" it cuts off half of the word.

I would be glad if it is fixed.

I've had the same problem for quite some time in Firefox. Just today I thought I noticed an improvement (that's why I was checking the forums, to see if a fix had been announced), but unfortunately it didn't last long.

The issue persists in safe mode, so it's not caused by an add-on. I really hope they'll decide to fix this at some point, but I don't believe the problem has even been acknowledged.

When I had this problem, I discovered it was because I moved the mouse before the audio finished.

That's definitely not what's causing it in my case. I don't even touch my mouse when doing lessons.

I've found if I hit the Listen button again, Duo will actually say the full word or sentence. It's a hassle, and there are some exercises where it doesn't work. Then I just hit the "Can't listen now" button and move on.

Still present as of 2019-08-29. Most pronounced under "Type what you hear". Sometimes more than the word disappears, sometimes only a bit of the last word. Sometimes playing again 'retrieves' the word(s). Always playing a slow speed retrieves everything.
