Problem with Ukrainian numbers in speaking exercises

There’s something wrong with the speaking exercises that feature numbers.

Every time I speak the numbers the app doesn’t recognise them (whilst it recognises all the other words in the sentence).

I know I’m pronouncing them right.

This applies to all the numbers, even the simple ones such as два (dva, two).

I'm using the desktop version. Throughout the entire course, I have found that there are similar audio problems. For example, on one lesson in one particular exercise it would not take my "Я". Probably the simplest word next to "у". I know I'm pronouncing them right, and I have tried speaking up, slowing down, and repeating just to get the word to register. It never does. I still pass the exercise because it recognizes that I've completed most of the sentence, but the one word? -- the same one word over and over, not taking it?

All I could do is report, and since Duolingo's reporting feature is weak, I must leave a comment to explain why my report for "audio doesn't sound correct" (or whatever is selected) so that I can explain myself.

On the flip side, the Ukrainian course also unequivocally marks some words correct when I didn't even say them yet. It would make sense if there is a repeat word in the sentence, but sometimes no. Also, it will mark something correct before I've even finished saying the sentence, or if I just jokingly gibberish my way through a word. I'm thinking, "What? Seriously? You take that as an answer, but every time I say "у" or "я" you don't register my word?

I had the same problem and reported it here 2 months ago - unfortunately, I never got an answer. :/ https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/32001124

Edit: I just realized I got an anwser from another user, but I didn't get any notifications about it.

I turned off this function a long time ago. If you want speak correctly you have to listen to native speakers more.
