Flight Lessons audio goes into loop while plane continues to fly

newbie here; w/ or w/o honeycomb alpha, when i go to lessons, flight control, it starts ok w/ good audio, and then when it gets to "outside your side window we can see we have great visibility over sedonna today’ the plane keeps flying forward, but the audio repeats the exact phrase again maybe 15 seconds later or so; it is some kind of loop only affecting the audio? i am in win10, on an alienware, well equipped.
i googled this and came up w/ nothing. any help or suggestions? not using steam. have premium deluxe edition of msfs2020.

I have a similar problem, except in my case the audio doesn’t repeat, but the flight continues and occasionally a message pops up asking me to reset my view.
