Windows Speech Recognition Tips
Windows Speech Recognition tips for using our software. Knowing these tips will greatly improve your Windows speech recognition experience with other Windows applications as well.
1) Volume of your microphone – Your headset microphone, the piece that listens to your voice and passes it onto the computer has a volume level from 0 (mute)-100 (loudest). Having the level too high will result in a tunnel effect, like when someone yells into a cell phone. Unfortunately, science tells us that yelling into the cell phone actually has the opposite effect and the person on the other end gets all muffled speech and speaking more softly in that case we allow your voice to be heard correctly.
You can use the microphone setup wizard located on the Hands Free Poker bar to access the Windows wizard for getting the correctly volume. Speak in an even tone, the computer is not looking for and can get confused with too much emotion in your voice, “I RAISE!!!”.
2) USB Digital Headset NOT Analog with the small green plug - We have found that to get the best possible voice recorded into your computer you need a DSP Audio Interface which will have a USB plug into the computer rather than the small green plug that you see on most laptops. The small green plug is analog which means it can pickup more interference on the way to your computer and is not as reliable for voice recognition applications.
3) Windows Voice Training – If you want the computer to learn you tendencies and get a much better understanding of your individual voice patterns. Please use the “Voice Training” button on your Hands Free Poker bar to launch the Windows speech recognition training wizard.
With 5-10 minutes of concentration on reading the voice training passages, Windows speech recognition will learn your voice and create a specific profile for you.
