How to use Speech Recognition
Before you can use the speech feature, there are some things that must be done. Unlike keyboards and mice, where the finger pressure is converted into a constant electronic pressure, voice has variations. So the software must be trained.
- First of all, there is a hardware issue. One needs a very good microphone. Avoid cheaper microphones since they tend to pick up a lot of background noise.
- Secondly create a voice profile and train the computer to identify the speakerís voice and pronunciation. There is a speech training tutorial.
