Hand Held Microphones for Computers

Digital (USB) vs Analogue Microphones

Speakeasy Solutions Inc. recommends a USB microphone input solution for speech recognition as the quality and consistency of audio input is higher than that which can be achieved with an analogue microphone.

USB microphones pass the audio directly to your computer. Analogue microphones pass through the computer’s sound card, which is usually not of sufficient quality.

Accuracy Hierarchy

Generally, the most accurate inputs are (from most to least accurate):

  • wired headset & wired telephony,
  • wireless headset & wireless telephony,
  • wired handheld,
  • wireless handheld,
  • desktop, and
  • digital array.

However, wireless technology has certainly advanced, and a high-quality wireless performs equally as well as wired.

Quality Impacts Accuracy

Not all microphones are created equal and therefore not all input devices on the market are effective.

Speakeasy Solutions Inc. tests all of the microphones sold to ensure the microphones meet their stringent requirements and match your needs.

Changing Microphones with Dragon

Using a new microphone with Dragon without creating a new user profile or a new sound source may result in diminished performance from Dragon. If you adopt a new microphone that is not the same make and model of your previous microphone, Speakeasy Solutions Inc. suggests creating a new user profile or new sound source.

Dragon allows for one type of each of its recognized sound sources to be used in a single user profile. In other words, you may use one input of each of the following types:

  • USB microphone,
  • digital recorder, and
  • Bluetooth wireless etc.

You may use only one USB microphone type (i.e. one USB headset OR one USB handheld). If you wish to use two of the same microphone types, create an additional user profile.

However, you may find an advantage in having a user profile incorporating the following input devices: Philips USB SpeechMike, Sennheiser Bluetooth wireless DW, and a digital voice recorder.

Wow! That's GREAT news for you! I know

How it can be when one is forced by circumstances to be out of contact with a close family member and what a joy it is to get re-connected again. I'm very happy for you...no one should have a son or daughter they cannot talk with and hold sometimes, it's just unnatural.
So, I wish you well and all the happiness there can be!
If you download the Skype software:
You can then use a headset (earphones with a microphone built in) plugged into your computer and call anywhere there's an internet connection for free

COCHIN, India Oct 22, 2005 — A few stars are still twinkling in the inky pre-dawn sky when Koyampurath Namitha arrives for work in a quiet suburb of this south Indian city. It's barely 4:30 a.m. when she grabs a cup of coffee and joins more than two dozen colleagues, each settling into a cubicle with a computer and earphones.
More than 7,000 miles away, in Glenview, Ill., outside Chicago, it's the evening of the previous day and 14-year-old Princeton John sits at his computer, barefoot and ready for his hourlong geometry lesson. The high school freshman puts on a headset with a microphone and clicks on computer software that will link him through the Internet to his tutor, Namitha, many time zones away.
