My pc comes with a built-in microphone though not that great or loud but I noticed win 7 has a speech recognition feature. I was thinking of using it with the built-in microphone but it appears they want an external microphone. Whenever I use my built-in for the speech recognition it doesnt recognize it.

This was discussed before. From a different perspctive - how to diasable it - but the information might be helpful. After all if you know how to disable something you will probably learn how to enable it. Worth a look -

Yea after reading it actually turn me to never attempting to enable it. Since it seems like such a problem to have and worst to get rid off. I just thought I could use it to communicate with the pc and have a lighter use of it.

An interesting article here -

 

https://www.pcworld.com/article/3124761/windows/the-windows-weakness-no-one-mentions-speech-recognition.html

 

I have never tried voice recognition but I understand that 'training' is the secret but Window's software takes more training than most. cortana, in win 10, apparently is very good at speech recognition but does not interface with, for example, MS Office. It also to an extent depends on the quality of the associated hardware such as microphones.
