  I note that the 3-in-1 has been optimised for DNS 11.  I'm still using DNS 10.1  -- will the three in one work just as well with 10.1?

DB,

The SpeechWare 3-in-1 definitely works just as well under DNS 10.1 as it does under DNS 11-11.5. You would be very pleasantly surprised at how well it works under DNS 10.1.

I'm currently using it to dictate this post using DNS 10.1 Medical under Windows XP.

Thanks for that - I was hoping that was the case.   Please ignore (or delete if poss) my other post requesting same info - I thought it hadn't been accepted!

Chuck, thank you for taking the time to test the 3-in-1 with Ver. 10 as we never got around to doing that. SpeechWare recommends using the blue light bypass setting for non-NaturallySpeaking Ver. 11 use but it's good to know that the blue light setting isn't necessarily a requirement

Lunis,

I've been testing every pre and post second generation SpeechWare 3-in-1 TableMike™ on DNS 10.1 Medical under Windows XP since way back in August. Therefore, we knew that it already worked superbly with DNS 10.1. It was DNS 11-11.5 that presented the unique problems Re: sensitivity to keyboard clicks yada yada yada. However, everything seems to be working just fine on both sides of the fence with the final release second generation SpeechWare 3-in-1 system board. I don't think anyone has anything to worry about regardless of which version of DNS they're using. Although I no longer use DNS 9.5, my guess is that it will work just fine on that version as well because from a microphone standpoint, there is basically no difference between DNS 10-10.1 and DNS 9-9.5.

I've also found, like you have, that the -54 dB sensitivity microphone element works just fine after clipping the 511 ohm resistor (making the sensitivity -47 dB). Is now working just fine on my Windows 7 64-bit machine with DNS 11.5 Professional and on my laptop with DMPE. The ideal distance from the microphone element is between 10 and 12 inches, but it works reasonably well at up to 24 inches. Just sounds kind of hollow at that distance. Also, the accuracy slips just a tiny bit the further you get away from 12 inches from the microphone element, but not worth worrying about. Just one or two extra misrecognitions for every 1000 words (most of the time 99.9% accurate, some of the time 99.6% accurate). That's why I say and not worth worrying about. I still get 99.9% to 100% accuracy most of the time. My guess is that the -37 dB microphone will work better at distances greater than 12 inches. However, all have to wait until I get mine.

Interestingly enough, the Sennheiser MD431 II, which is a super cardioid microphone element, has a sensitivity level of -47 dB. However, you can't get the kind of accuracy that that microphone provides at a distance of greater than 4 inches, and the sweet spot is between 1 1/2 and 2 inches. I get virtually 100% with that one 99% of the time. Still, the overall accuracy is 99.9% with the Sennheiser MD431 II at 1/2 to 2 inches from the microphone element.

My point in stating the above is that the SpeechWare 3-in-1 is getting better and comes close to 99.9% accuracy almost all the time even though that's in a quiet environment (computer fan noise only). Nevertheless, 99.9% accuracy, and in many cases 100% accuracy, at a distance of about 12 inches with the SpeechWare 3-in-1 in that environment is pretty damn good.
