Windows 7: What was that? asks the voice recognition mic bar.

What was that? asks the voice recognition mic bar.

Just learning to use Windows speech recognition. Voice training going just fine until the mic hears some stray sound other than my voice, then, displays that question. The display lasts for a little while then goes off.

Is there a list of replies to that question that will help me and my laptop with voice training.

It seems to respond to your breathing as well, not sure saying "it's only my breathing" would help though hehe.

Probably not my breathing because the mic is on my webcam, a good 12 inches from my face.

But you give me a good idea; I will get one of those wearable microphones.

In the meantime, I will try speaking some kind of explanation to the device.

Thanks again.
