I have just reported it

Does this sentence imply that Corinna is praising her own mother? If her own mother was implied in context, could this sentence be used as is, without the possessive?

I answered "Corinna praises her mother", and this was accepted without a suggestion for a different translation.

Sorry audio of" matrem " is not clear

The audio (male voice) doesn't say "mātrem" but ”mattrem" with a short vowel /a/ in the first syllable and then a long/geminate /tt/.
