Hi!

The "multi-mute-confusion" is caused by having only one hardware for different applications, so you won't get a general solution.

If you have a headset with built-in mute switch, you can mute your microphone for ANY application that wants to record audio (regardless whether this audio is to be transcribed into text or sent across the wire by a conferencing app).

But if your mike hardware is "on", then any application can capture your speech, even several applications in parallel. There is no general way to say that only a single application should be allowed to record audio at any time (thus muting all the other applications automatically).

And even if there were, you'd still have to tell the computer somehow which appllication you want your audio to process.

We had something similar with another hardware resource: our dictation management system allows control by hand microphone buttons/sliders (e.g. Philips SpeechMike, Grundig Digta ProMic, Olympus DR-xxx).

If you press the "Record" button you want to turn the microphone on, but what happens if two or more applications that can be controlled by this single handheld mike are running in parallel?

Usually you don't want to record a digital dictation AND perform speech recognition on the same dictation in parallel, but each application has to know that it's supposed to record once the record button is being pressed.

Our solution was to transfer control to the application that last got interacted with (got focus) and to signal to all other applications to give up their control, but unless you actually click the desired application, the computer simply cannot know what you want.

Same with muting audio input in different applications.
