  2. setting up microphone for speech recognition

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand your concern as you are trying to setup speech recognition on the PC.
    In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    • What is the Windows 10 version and Build installed? (Type
      winver in Windows search/Run command)
    • When you say that “the box is grey and unresponsive”, where you are seeing this option?
    • Are you able to connect the microphone to the PC? (Does it show in Device Manager)


    Meanwhile we would suggest you to perform these steps and check if you are able to setup the microphone.

    Steps to set up a microphone: Before you set up Speech Recognition, make sure you've plugged the microphone into your PC so the following steps work.

    1. Press Windows + Q or click on the Windows Search.
    2. Enter Set up a microphone in the search box, and then tap or click
      Set up a microphone.
    3. Follow the instructions on the screen.
    4. Once you are able to setup the microphone and then check if it’s working.

    Unable to use Microphone on the computer

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are unable to use Microphone on your computer. I’ll certainly assist you with this issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • Were you able to use Microphone on your computer earlier?
    • What is the make and model of the Microphone that you are using?


    Ideally, if we add a new Microphone to the computer, we will need to go through the setup process to use it, let me help you with the steps. I would suggest you to refer the article on
    How to set up and test microphones in Windows 10 and setup
    the Microphone. Once the Microphone is setup, you can start using it.



    If you still face issues, I would suggest you to refer the article on
    Fix microphone problems
    and see if that helps.



    Let us know the results, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,
