It may be that at conversational speed, the vowel is influenced by the following sound. I had the same complaint.
You are right.
the audio says "ma3-ra-taf"
When I put the cursor on the first word to hear it, it sounds correct (mi3Taf), but when I click on the phrase, the voice seems to say ma3Taf.
Actually it is right because it depends on the sentence.
