If your operating systerm does not have the US English Speech Recognition capabilities, please have a look at the Non-English, Non-Ultimate, Non-Enterprise Workaround section on PAGE 12 of the IYP Users' manual.

This will bring up a window where you will need to select Advanced Speech Options in order to get to the Speech Properties.

Set up the Audio Input then use the Configure Microphone option to set your input levels.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: USE A HIGH-QUALITY MICROPHONE HEADSET.

A high-quality microphone headset will dramatically improve the accuracy of speech recognition by your computer.
