    MacSpeech USB question
    MacSpeech instructions say to plug the headset into the computer. The instructions show a picture of plugging into the back off the computer. As there are only 4 hub connections on my mac and I have use 3, I want to save one for future (i.e. printer, etc),

    I do have a hub installed in back of my computer. Can I plug my headset into the hub without degrading the quality/speech recognition? thanks

    I have used the VXI headset that came with MacSpeech off and on for a while. When I shifted to the MacBook Pro as my main machine I started using the mic with a hub. It doesn't seem to have affected accuracy much (if at all). I am using a self-powered hub though I am not sure that would matter.

    there is a way to use an internal mic if you have one installed. just use line in and soundflower. here is a pic of how you should adjust it.


    Input from: Built-In Input: Internal
    Output to: soundflower 2ch
    and click pass thru...

    you must have Linein open to use it though

    Interesting. I think I actually used an internal mic configuration with MacSpeech briefly. Don't remember If I used other software as you suggest.

    i believe the software doesn't support internal mics since the latest update...but there is always a way around a wall

    That would explain a few things. I did the internal mic test sometime in late '08/early '09 shortly after purchasing my unibody MacBook. That was, of course, a couple of MacSpeech revisions ago and I have not tried it since. When at home I use my desktop mic in other settings I find the internal mic pics up a bit too much noise in the settings I would use it in so I haven't played with the internal mic for speech recognition.
