Speech Input Problems!

I'm having problems with the speech input, if I don't get it correct on the first try, then quite often I'm reading out the phrase and it will stop recording me after only 1 or 2 seconds, therefore not giving me a chance to complete the question! I'm finding the new speech input very good apart from this minor - but frustrating - problem.

I'm on a windows pc using google chrome. Any suggestions would be welcome!

On the app, as soon as you stop speaking (even if you take a little breath) the timer will stop. It's possible that this is on the Website too.

It happens even when I say it all in one go

I'm having a similar issue with the input, as well. Things were going just fine, the other week, with using my headset w/mic. No issues, whatsoever. I've tried two, different headsets, and even when speaking extremely, it is glitched. But, let me use the app on my iPad and no problem. I don't even use a headset or anything. Go, figure, other than it's very frustrating.

Same here. Also no matter how loudly, slowly and clearly I speak, the program misinterprets what I say :(
