Does anyone know where I can get a signal attenuator, I've looked all over and can't find one anywhere. I've just bought IBM Via Voice 10 but the headset need a signal attenuator to cut down the sound taken in by the mike although I would have thought that since the headset came with the software it would have been ok. According to the manual it needs this item depending on the type of sound card. Can anyone help?
Sorry I was so long replying Graham, perhaps some versions are USB but the Viavoice 10 I have has a standard mike, not a USB one. I do see what you mean about the price, it would double the price of trying voice recognition so I'll have to try to think of something else. Thanks anyway.
If the mic output is e.g 4mv and the sound card is about 2mv, the impedance of the mic is usually 1K ohms which I suspect is the same impedance as the input to the sound card. A half decent electronics engineer could build a simple T attenuator for about 4 pence plus the cost of a box and plugs and sockets at a cost of no more than £4.
