Microphone not recognised by Dragon?

If you suddenly find that Dragon does not recognise your microphone any more, even though Windows sees it, the below video might be the solution.

Apparently the latest large windows update (1803) changes something in the security settings of Windows. This video shows you how to check for the settings and make sure that your microphone isn’t blocked.

If you have any questions about how to use Dragon, remember that you can join the Learn Dragon Online Academy membership and get all the support you need! Reopening on 1 October 2018 for new paid members.

Hi, I'm Janneke and I'm your go-to person for Dragon speech recognition software help.

When I got severe repetitive strain injury issues over 20 years ago, I didn't want to give up using the computer. So I learned all about controlling the PC with speech recognition and dictating my documents and emails.

I've now been a speech recognition software trainer and consultant for almost two decades, teaching over 2000 people handsfree productivity!

My online courses offer self-paced learning and I also love running my membership for Dragon users. For those in need of an intensive training or custom speech command creation, I am available for one-on-one calls.
