I have just started revising with the play it tests using the new version and I find that it often fails to recognise the last word in a sentence although it is clearly present on the playback. I don't seem to get this problem when I record an individual sentence.
I never had this problem with the old version although it is a couple of months since I used Play It.
I think the speech recognition is a little more demanding than it was which is fine.
I have checked the mic level and the recording is clear on playback.
