Issue: I have Dragon NaturallySpeaking and my microphone may be broken. I went through the 'Check Audio' with Dragon and it failed. What should I do next?

Resolution: Problems with your microphone or sound card can make Dragon NaturallySpeaking run slowly as well as decrease recognition accuracy. The following test will help you identify any problems you might be having with these components.

To make a windows sound recording

1. Click the Start button, then point to Programs, Accessories, Entertainment and click Sound Recorder.
2. On the File menu of the Sound Recorder window, click Properties.

8. Click the red button to start recording and dictate for 5 to 10 seconds, then click the stop (black rectangle) button.
9. Click play (the right pointing arrow button).
10. If the playback of your dictation is not clear or contains static, you have a problem with your microphone and soundcard (or USB device). You should try a different microphone and soundcard combination to discover which component in your system is at fault.
