I started out troubleshooting the microphone. I got it where it is working, but still some probs there with the volume. But at least I know the microphone is working. Now I am trying to get the speech part working. When I say "new line", it inserts "Elia" (must be the Gremlin's girlfriend). If I say "New Paragraph" it writes "And start Maung now to get know why that the navy". I thought it might be a problem with the language settings since Maung is a language but I can't find anything that is other than English in all the settings. I say "Is the sound settings correct?" and it writes "It's the sound setting for a bidder is the file and spending".
So as you can see, I have a Gremlin who is driving me nuts.
My settings for the headset may be at issue. Because I have the headset plugged into the front jack and I don't see the back jack showing and my desktop speakers and Skype are hooked into the back jack. I've tried to find out how to separate the two without success. I changed all the Skype settings that I thought might interfere.
I need to get it set up to be able to use voice to text anyplace I go on the internet and out and it is incredibly hard. I ran into a subscription that said it would help with voice to text by having an extensive list of words available to carry on a conversation or write an email without having to stop and type a specific word etc. This is called Microsoft Azure. Does anybody know if that will help me in getting this feature setup? I hope so because I signed up for it (free trial).
OK: Here's the info:
It's desktop: Dell Inspirion 3847 64 bit
1 Tg hard drive Windows 8.1
Forgot what processor speed it is.
I can use the voice to text on my phone but setting up the desktop is awful.
Thank you for your help.
