Hi Hoverboy,

I'm afraid I can't help you with your question, but recommend that you ask over in the KnowBrainer forums @ http://www.knowbrainer.com/forums/forum/index.cfm

Invest in a MacBook with the full MacOS- this will enable you to use the Dictation facility (comes free with the OS) if you have a good quality USB mike. Bluetooth is not much good for these things.

Heath Robinson says... Jan 5, 2016

I recently acquired a newer version of DNS Premium and it came with a natty little headset (double mini-jack plugs) which work fine. On my main PC, which I'm using just now, I kept getting the same problem with a USB headset because every little wobble of the cable made it cut out. I solved it Blue Peter style a couple of hours ago with a bit of strong masking tape to hold the USB plug in place... Not terribly aesthetically pleasing, but it does the job!

PS: I'm afraid I can't help
