Skips beats when recording

When I record a text it skips beats at the beginning of a new word or after a few words.
Listen to recording attached.
What should I do to solve / overcome this? Do I make a mistake in the set-up of the program?

Do you have Sound Activated Recording turned on?

Audacity > Preferences > Recording: [_] Sound Activated Recording (de-select).


Yessssss!!! It works!!! Thank you so much!!
