    Speech Recognition slow

    I have a Dell Dimension E521 with an AMD 3200+ processor and 4 GB of RAM.
    When I run Speech Recognition, using a Plantronics CS50-USB microphone, I get
    a lot of mistakes, and sometimes it takes several seconds for the words to
    appear on the screen (if they appear at all). After running the software a
    while, it becomes erratic, giving totally unrelated words or asking "what was
    that?" repeatedly. I can't get Dragon NaturallySpeaking to work with Vista
    at all. Since I'm a quadriplegic, I really need recognition software. Can
    some Vista-literate user help me troubleshoot?

    It's possible the USB port is timing out on Power Management settings.
    Control Panel/Device Manager/USB Root Hub(s)/Properties/Power Management
    tab. I would also crank up the Gain on the Mic.

    Re: Speech Recognition slow

    If anyone is still interested in this, the problem is the failure of the words to appear on the screen even though the cursor is moving. Words are being generated, you jsut can't see them. This happened when I was dictating in the middle of a document -- writing a "new top," as we used to say. The problem seems to have disappeared when I moved the new text to the bottom so I am dictating into unused space. So think of it as writing on fresh paper and it should work fine.
