Good Day

I am a captioner and I have been using Dragon for years. I read somewhere in this forum that the ideal sample rate for recordings is 16 bit mono, 22.5 khz. However, this is for transcriptionists who record their audio first and then feed it to dragon and let dragon do its thing. As a captioner, I don't record audio. I repeat the speech I hear and my words are fed to dragon real time. Is it the same sample rate requirement in my case? Because my sound card can only go as low as 44.1 khz.

                    Welcome (See Mission Statement)

 

It is normally preferable to use a USB soundcard rather than the specialized external or internal sound card but as far as the sampling rate is concerned, Dragon automatically drops the sampling rate down to 22.5 kHz. You don't have to worry about anything as long as your soundcard can drop down to your current setting.
