‘Mum’ is not misspelling. It’s English English.

how should that 'т' be pronounced? I am having some trouble hearing it well.

A little softer than English T. [tee]

    Only in the first position. If we agree that t' marks a soft T, and that plain t marks the sound it makes, e. g. in French, then the (approximate, but good for practical purposes) transcription will be [t'ítka].

    I've always used teta

    It's used by Ukrainians in 1920s, and nowadays you can hear it sometimes in West Ukraine

    Does the audio only say "Мама" for anyone else?
