Low volume at beginning of recording and at beginning of sentences

I’m running Audacity 3.1.2 on Windows 10 Pro for audiobook narration and this problem has recently cropped up. My raw audio volume is lower with the first utterance of a word following a pause then quickly rises to a ‘normal’ level for the remainder of the sentence. This is happening with every sentence. Help!

The likely culprit is Windows Audio Enhancements. See: Disable Audio Enhancements - Microsoft Support
