Chapter 8. Using Speech and Handwriting ... > Setting Up Speech Recognition

Setting Up Speech Recognition

Before you can set up speech recognition, you need to verify that both your microphone and speakers are connected and work properly. Because the specific hardware you're using will vary, consult the manual that came with your microphone and speakers if you have any issues regarding setting them up. Once your hardware is connected, you're ready to begin. Position the microphone to the side about an inch from your mouth; close enough to hear your words, but not so close as to hear your breath.

Setting up speech recognition is essentially a two-step process: Configure your microphone, and complete a voice training session so that PowerPoint recognizes your speech when you dictate or issue voice commands. Although you can perform these steps separately or go back to make adjustments to each, PowerPoint walks you through the entire process step-by-step the first time you use speech recognition.
