Possible bug

In Spanish alphabet pronunciation in level 1 module 1, Ja-ja is listed and it seems to be expecting the pronunciation of the actual dash. It has recognized my pronunciation of both jotas multiple times but after maybe 45 minutes still refuses to 100% it regardless of how long or short a pause I...
