Can anything be done about MacOS dictation repeating phrases and sentences in Obsidian?

What I’m trying to do

Whenever I try to use MacOS Dictation (not Voice Control) in Obsidian, phrases within statements I dictate get repeated, sometimes whole statements do too. I tried this in a handful of other apps and text boxes and only Obsidian has this problem.

Things I have tried

There isn’t anything I thought of that I could try.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, do you see the same problem there?

No, only on macOS.

In my testing the repetition seemed to happen after I tried to verbally insert a newline or paragraph.

Tried adding newlines only by typing but eventually got a repeated chunk of text anyway. I think all of them occurred near apostrophes.

Should I file a bug report?

If you can reproduce the problem in the Sandbox vault (found in the Help menu at lower left), and there isn’t already a report, yes. (I tested in my normal vault without thinking.)
