Could someone please explain how and why you "train" your microphone?

With Version 15, there is no training. However, you may find it helpful to "fine-tune" your audio settings by running the Audio Setup Wizard:

DragonBar > Audio > Check Microphone...

Probably a good idea to run this when changing to a different microphone, using a different USB port with the microphone, or when the sonic environment is noisier or quieter than in the past.

Microphone training (fine tuning) only works if you remove the checkmark from Automatically adjust the microphone level as I speak in the DragonBar Choose a Microphone menu. If you don't remove the checkmark Dragon will still allow you to use the Check Microphone utility but your changes will be ignorred. Dragon is designed this way so that you can switch out microphones on the fly.

Note that many end-users, especially physicians, have found their accuracy noticeably improved after disabling auto-gain.
