Hi there! I am messing around with Picroft for the first time on a Raspberry Pi 4. I managed to get it set up and paired quite easily using items from the recommended hardware list, and it’s great! However, I am a little concerned about the amount of time between the detection of the wake word and when it begins recording audio. It usually seems to take ~3 seconds. Responses to requests are longer of course, but I am ok with that.
Looking around the forums, I found this topic: Speed of reacting to the wake word - #3 by gekoch
I followed the advice within, and it did not seem to have an impact. It is still taking ~3 seconds to respond, which seems a lot slower than demonstrations in tutorial videos I’ve found online for the same hardware.

Is there anything anyone can recommend for improving this response time? Thanks in advance for your time.
