So - it was all going so well and VC mic was behaving itself. Then, suddenly it began to switch the Dragon mic off every 1-2 minutes (see the attached screenshot if it allows me to post it (refused the last time).
well no surprise there. Attaching a screenshot failed. The process showed it as uploading but it was still showing the upload after 10 minutes. You will have to take it from me that there were at least 10 entries all showing the microphone activated when I did nothing of the kind at around accuracies of 93 to 94%over a period of 20 minutes.
Quick update on the use of SpeechStart as an alternative to the VC microphone. This worked just as expected and would reliably restart Dragon but was very slow even though I had temporarily disabled the VC microphone. So that is a non-starter.
First, if you can’t upload a file to the forum, just email the file to me.
At the moment I have moved to a desktop with a completely new set up because of the problems I had on my laptop with the repeated closing of the microphone. However I will fire it up, get you one of the typical files and email it to you as you suggest.
