Audacity running in reverse

I’m new to Audacity and new to editing so please accept my ignorance.

I am using the latest version of Audacity with Windows 10.

Sometimes my recording ms are running in reverse. Is this a flaw in the software?

Obviously, if I go to effects and reverse it plays correctly but surely I shouldn’t have to do that.

I’d be grateful for help.

I’ve never heard of this. :neutral_face:

scrubbing can make the audio play in reverse, (a feature not a bug).
