    Speech Recognition

    Hello,

    I think I'm posting in the right place, but if not, I'd appreciate it if someone would redirect me.

    I have a Gateway Tablet PC. I'm using the speech to text feature. Everything is fine as long as I keep talking. If I pause for about 3 seconds, the computer flashes a "Too Soft" speech message in the dictation area, and begins sounding the bell. This in turn seems to be interpreted as "end". So when I pause for a few seconds, my machine begins sounding the bell and I get "end end end end end". This kind of makes the whole speech to text thing discouraging.

    Is there a simple fix to this that I am missing? I can't seem to find any troubleshooting in the help.

    Re: Speech Recognition

    I have no experience with this type of hardware / software - so I'm not actually helping with the question asked.

    I wonder however, if this is better suited in the software forum. I think we can leave it here for a day or two for any possible answers to turn up. If nothing comes of it, then we'll move it.

    Hello,

    Actually, I may have stumbled onto a fix for this, if not a solution. If you mute the speaker, the computer doesn't chime when waiting for a response. And if it doesn't chime, then it doesn't interpret the chime as a word. So it takes care of the problem.

    Re: Speech Recognition

    Now that's a fancy solution. I wonder if the software "ideally" expects the end user to use a headset or microphone and headphone plugged in?

    Somedays... you just have to wonder <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.
