pronunciation of the soundfile is bad.

Not for me. I'm Spanish and I don't know Italian but we have almost the same pronunciation, and i understand perfectly this phrase, even I can write sentences the first time that i heard it in Italian. What I think is that Italian has the most robotic voice of all Duolingo.

The software has an issue here. She says "La carota"

Would "I am eating a carrot" also work for this sentence?

I don't think so. There is a construction that comes later sto + gerund for that. sto mangiando uns carota. But I think that mangio una carota coukd mean I am going to eat a carrot.

if you write it and check, it'll say you are correct) so I guess it sort of would

It's difficult to tell the difference between "mangio" and "mangia" with the computer voice. Maybe add "Io" so that it's clearer.
