Problem with Recording Speed

I am running Audacity 2.4.2 on Windows 10. I am in the middle of recording an audiobook.

I have somehow inadvertently changed the recording speed (it is now slower) in the middle of a recording. I have double checked every setting I can think of with no luck.

Any suggestions? I am desperate.

Thanks,

Bill

Try saving the project, then close and relaunch Audacity, then make a test recording in a new project. Is it recording normally?
