A mate is trying to get Naturally Speaking v5 to work on her computer without success. She uses a Sony digital dictaphone.

Any ideas?

How good is the sound quality on the dictaphone ? How is it connected ?

try recording something from the dictaphone onto the PC then play it back through the PC speakers - how does it sound ?

Putting a decent microphone (NOT the one supplied with the software which must have cost them all of 20p) on made all the difference last time I looked at this.

Is it a decent spec machine ? lots of processor and memory?

Also isnt v5 quite old now ?

I'll check all this - Ta Mark.

She's about to buy the latest Via Voice and I'm going over to check it all out.

Check things like audio levels etc. How is she connecting the dictaphone to the PC? is there a problem in the fact that the DP may be mono?
