|Speech Recognition Resources
To put it simply, it's not about the money. We charge for the microphones and accessories, but the markup is relatively small and it won't pay for college for my daughter. The real reason we're here is to help others in their efforts to successfully utilize speech recognition software. You will notice that there isn't a device that we make that we won't show you how to construct. And we'll help you find low cost sources of parts.
Once you've got the proper equipment, including suitable computer, software and microphone, then you'll want to optimize your use of speech recognition software and achieve the greatest accuracy possible. Here are some links to help you in the process. Enjoy!
