The Owl can't hear me let alone understand me!
When I have the mic turned on it appears that I am given an opportunity to say something in French......I appreciate my failings, but when I speak the Owl either can't hear me or doesn't understand!
I keep trying but I continue to a negative response.
My hardware seems to be ok because I can record things and use Skype
Any suggestions...does it work for you?
It doesn't work for me, I suggest skipping it for now and turning off microphone in your preferences.
I find it happens when I'm saying phrases that run together (e.g. bonne nuit). I have to say it very loud, then it's OK.
Same happens to me. Sometimes I have to skip, but I find if I slow down and enunciate, it usually works after a few tries. Running together the words, as BiancaJessica stated, is often a more accurate pronunciation, but the speech recognition software has difficulty understanding.
