Does this sentence sound like an imperative to anyone else? It's not in the imperative form in Latin, but the English sounds like it's supposed to be?
I strongly recommend you get someone else to record the audio in a better room with a better microphone. These are all very low quality. I recommend you listen the Japanese, French, Spanish or Arabic audio (or anything, really) to set a baseline.
I have given them the benefit of the doubt because it's a Beta, but a few have been particularly egregious. There is often a second or more pause before the word being read, and a fair percentage of the recordings include a sound that is possibly a pneumatic chair slightly adjusting (might it be the person leaning over towards the microphone while sitting on one?).
