In another thread https://www.knowbrainer.com/forums/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=4&threadid=33424&highlight_key=y&keyword1=asleep

there is the advice

Originally posted by: R. Wilke ... Use me  If you definitely don't use it for any amount of time lasting longer than 15 minutes perhaps, you should always turn the microphone completely off.

and, indeed, people say this all over the place now that I'm looking for it.

 

Q: has anyone written code to automatically turn Dragon "microphone off" if no speech has happened or greater than five minutes perhaps?

 

--

 

I have probably run into this a few times. I'm going to try to train myself not to say "go to sleep".

(Shoot, I said "goto sleep" as above, and it took 15 seconds to respond to "wake up".  That's annoying.)

 

I wonder if other ways of supposedly disabling speech have problems similar to sending the microphone to sleep:

 

(a) putting my headset on his charging stand (Sennheiser, per sig)

 

(b) muting using the button on the headset.

 

I would much rather use the mute button on the headset than have to say "microphone off", and, worse, click the DragonBar or use the hotkey to turn it back on.
