    Closing Speech Recognition Circle
    I was messing around with the speech recognition feature, which I just recently discovered I had, and this circle comes up that lets you know when it is hearing your voice. But now I want it to go away, and I can't figure out how. The best I can do is send it to the right-side of the dock, but how can I just close out of it? I really wouldn't use speech recognition much at all, so it's just in the way now.

    As far as I know it's there until you turn Speech Recognition off.

    Simple solution for a now embarrassing question. I was trying/expecting to close out of it like it was some kind of program and I was confused. Should have thought more basically, I suppose. But I'm just glad it's gone, now. Thanks
