Hi Smile

It`s very strange, saying "start" "notepad" "close notepad" work 90% of the time, however when I say "one" it dictates and converts it
to text perfectly but when I set up a macro to "One" = "F1" it always ask me: "what was that?"

I want to play games using macros for F1 F2 F3... Is there a way to allow recognition ONLY for words within macros?

I want to prevent things like saying "charlie"(command in tactical game) and the WSR hear "charlotte".

I must be doing something wrong because for windows basic commands and text dictation it hear me mostly well, but for macros it almost never works Cry

Also, I set up a Macro for "Alpha" = "F1" but when I said "Alpha" it always read as "Moving"
so I prevented the word "Moving" in the dictionary but it didn't work.

Any ideas?

Why not name the trigger word F1? If that does not work, try naming the trigger word, Eff-one.

Already tried that, it seems like it's  almost deaf for macros. Now it has gone a bit crazy and its not even recognizing Notepad commands.

Sounds crazy, but reboot with WSR started on boot. Worth a try.

...and make sure the WSR Macros program is actually running.

You could also try raising the priority of the command with the following syntax in the macro:

<command priority="100">

This essentially raises the command in the "pecking order" that WSR is looking at to decide how to interpret your speaking. The range is 0 (the lowest and the default) to 127 (the highest priority).

However, if your <listenFor> statements are not very distinctive and at times mirror existing keys (like "one"), WSR may continue to struggle. Consider using short trigger phrases like Fort 1, Fort 2, and Fort 3 for F1, F2, and F3.
