    • Supported Operating System

      Windows Vista

        • A computer running a genuine copy of Windows Vista (x86 or x64)
        (Currently, only US English-language editions of Windows are supported)

        • A microphone

        We recommend the following in addition:

        • A minimum of 1GB of memory is recommended.

        • Completing the Microphone Wizard and the Windows Speech Recognition tutorial before using WSR Macros. This will ensure that your microphone is properly set-up and help the speech engine become adapted to your voice.

        • Speakers or headset for sound and voice output.

        • Speech recognition works best when the computer can hear you clearly. We recommend high quality microphones for best results.

        The use of Bluetooth microphones is not recommended since they do not support high enough quality audio for speech recognition to work optimally.
      • 1) Install WSR Macros from the setup file.

        2) After installation, WSR Macros can be invoked by clicking Start Menu -> All Programs -> Windows Speech Recognition Macros.

        3) When loaded, the WSR Macros icon is placed in the taskbar notification area, close to where the time and system alerts are shown.

        Refer to the release notes document for more details.
