Troubleshooting

Resolving Microphone Problems

Q1: I spoke into the microphone, but nothing happened.
First, verify that you've installed and set up speech recognition, you've clicked the Microphone button on the Language bar, and clicked the appropriate speech button (either Dictation or Voice Command) on the Language bar. Also, verify that your insertion point is in a location that can accept text. If the software doesn't seem to be the problem, take a look at your actual microphone. Be sure that you've turned it on, connected it properly, and haven't pressed a mute button. If you still have no luck, try the microphone with another program to see if it works. If it doesn't, refer to your microphone manual for additional troubleshooting advice.

Understanding PowerPoint's Speech and Handwriting Recognition Limitations

Q1: The buttons in the Writing Pad and the Write Anywhere window don't work.
Not all handwriting recognition functionality works in all Office applications. For example, when you click the Drawing Pad, Ink, or Correction button from within PowerPoint, it won't work because PowerPoint doesn't support those functions. Switch to Word 2002, and they will become active.
