I have Windows Vista Home Premium. Is there any way to adjust the volume
control of the microphone level manually like there always use to be?
The speech recognition portion of the Control Panel has a place to setup for
SR, but it seems pretty useless. If it hears ANYTHING from the microphone,
it passes! If it happens to notice it was too low a volume, a message that
comes back that says something like 'the sound was too low, hit 'Back' to
re-try'... but 'Back' isn't an option, only 'Next' and 'Cancel', and 'Next'
ALWAYS ays the microphone is ready. So this is definitely a bug, making me
worry that they forgot about microphone support to a great extent.
In none of this is there ANY way to adjust the volume of the microphone, and
it this SR microphone wizard doesn't adjust the volume at all, even if it
was too low!
There use to be a separate slider of the 'sound volume mixer' for this, but
the new one has no slot for 'microphone'. Or else this ability is burried
somewhere I can't find it...
I mean, at the very least, there should be a way to MUTE the microphone
input! Where are the microphone volume controls, or did this somehow slip
through the cracks (which is hard to believe)...?
