Training Excel to Recognize Your Voice

To achieve success with speech recognition, you must train the speech recognition tool to recognize your voice and train yourself to speak clearly and consistently into the microphone. Unlike a person, who can interpret a word or phrase both by its sound and by its context, speech recognition is literal and requires a clear articulation of every phrase. Consistent, clear speech is essential to achieve any sort of accuracy.

Assuming you just installed speech recognition, the Voice Training – Default Speech Profile dialog box should appear on your screen, as shown in Figure 15.6, indicating that you must train speech recognition before you begin using it. If this dialog box does not appear, or if you ran a training session and want to run it again, click the Tools button in the Language bar and choose Training. The Voice Training – Default Speech Profile dialog box appears, welcoming you to the training session. Click Next and follow the onscreen instructions to position your microphone properly and test it.
