I have a similar problem. I run XP Pro. The computer has two sets of headset jacks, one pair at the front and the other at the rear. If I plug the jacks into the rear set the microphone works and the text recognition is OK; however, the headphone is silent. If I plug into the front pair, I get the reverse! The headphone picks up sound, but the microphone doesn't work! In both instances the external speakers are fine. Any ideas?
