    Posted: 08/Jul/2013 at 9:34am
I am using a Phillips speech mike pro 6274 and am having all sorts of problems with WSR.  It previously worked great with Vista (imagine that!)  When I start speech recognition it will start up and quickly have an error, stating it needs to be restarted.  I have to click on the speech recognition control center and then click on audio devices and then click start speech recognition in order for it to work.  I have to do the same thing to configure the microphone.  Training has been very spotty on recognizing words or sentences and I will sometimes be unable to complete it due to it not getting past one sentence.  Often times it will spontaneously pause repeatedly during training and I have to hit the resume it over and over.  I can dictate but it also is spotty.  I have tried it with a blue parrot xpress bluetooth headset  and had similar problems.  I thought it might be the microphone but I'm beginning to think it is WSR.  Any help very much appreciated.

Make a Windows sound recorder recording and listen to play back. If the playback is clear the microphone is not the problem. Sometimes, or an or an internal microphone on the notebook computer Disable these if they are on your computer. Bluetooth microphones will not work with Windows speech recognition as Windows speech recognition uses an audio sampling rate 4x higher than Bluetooth.

Marty, thanks for the reply. I made a sound recording which worked fine so I don't think it is the microphone.  WSR is having all sorts of strange behaviors.  I downloaded the WSR macros and now at times the speech recognition bar will get stuck where I can't do anything to minimize it or close it and it won't respond.  I have to restart the computer to close it.   It still won't start up properly and gives me error messages if I don't first go to the speech recognition control center and click on audio devices.  Is there any way to repair the speech recognition module because I think that is the problem?

There's no way to repair windows speech recognition. It is integrated into the operating system. What type of CPU and how much RA RAM Also which version of the Windows operating s Also which version of the Windows operating system?

There is nothing wrong with your system specifications. :-)

At this point, I would try using the Philips SpeechMike on a different Windows computer. Beyond that , you only have two choices you can either try to use a restore point to a point where it was working ( if ever) or else reinstall the OS.

Marty, I tried my one of my co-workers Samson Q7 that I had him purchase from you and it worked flawlessly with no errors on Win7 speech recognition.  It appears that the drivers are likely the problem and I can't find any drivers for Win 7 for this mike.  I don't guess you would know of any do you?

Sorry, do not know. Contact Jon Wahrenberger of www.emicrophones.com / www.speechrecsolutions.com. He bought us last year. If you want a good handheld, look at Audix OM2s.
