It’s not clear how many VoiceComputer users use the VC microphone.
Those who use it find it exceedingly useful, like yourself, for a lot of reasons:
1. As long as the microphone is turned on, you can launch VoiceComputer and Dragon by voice command without either being loaded (VC microphone on at boot up-“activate VoiceComputer”).
I use VC microphone constantly all the way from what I’ve said above to shutting down the computer.
