For excellent speech recognition, you must speak distinctly and say each and every syllable of each and every word in the command. Say the commands as one word. You cannot mumble or cut short pronunciation.
Teach the program to understand you!! Usually,training a misrecognition is all that is needed.
For maximum efficiency, you should have only the speech engine and the math program active - no other programs.
Learn only what you need ! You need Pre-Algebra - do the Pre-Algebra Learning Module. There are also Learning Modules for Algebra, Trig, Calculus and Statistics.
We recommend that you disable any virus software. In some instances, they may interfere with MathTalk/Scientific Notebook/Naturally Speaking.
Do not minimize the Dragon voice bar for MathTalk.
MathTalk will not open with another MathTalk application already running. You will get an error message if you try to restart MathTalk AND have not closed an already opened MathTalk. That already opened MathTalk icon shows in the bottom tray. To close MathTalk, click the icon and either say "exit MathTalk" or click the Button.
If loading the MathTalk portion on a Tablet PC, you may get "..invalid serial #" and not be able to load MathTalk. Remedy: Assuming that you have already loaded both Dragon and ScientificNotebook on the Tablet PC: 1. Load the MathTalk portion on another computer (a computer other than the Tablet PC): 2. Copy the MathTalk folder in C drive & paste that MathTalk folder in C drive on the Tablet PC. 3. Copy the MathTalk.exe file from this MathTalk folder & paste the MathTalk.exe on the Tablet PC desktop. 4. Continuing referring to MathTalk/ScientificNotebook Install Instructions beginning at "IV. Configure NaturallySpeaking and Copy Scinoteb...."
With Vista operating system: If saying 'start mathtalk' from the Desktop results in an error message: 1. Delete the MathTalk shortcut from the Desktop 2. From the MathTalk folder in c:, right click on the MathTalk.exe and select Sent To Desktop.
Using ScientificNotebook (SN) with Vista:
1. Install SN
2. Run once as Admin: a. from Desktop, right click on SN, b. choose run as Admin, c. SN will open, d. close SN
( this will update the Vista registry)
3. Then can run SN regular way
