    – Position the microphone element to the side of your mouth and about 2.5 cm away to avoid noise from breathing.
    – Don’t breath directly into the microphone.
    – Please ensure that the mute mode is not active.

    Volume Level Indicator:
    Ensure that the level indicator stays mainly in the zone, which is marked green while speaking into the microphone.

    Important Notes:
    Please take care that the dictation surrounding is as quiet as possible. E.g. close the window to keep out traffic noise. Background noises can have a negative effect on the recognition quality. Some devices also provide microphones with an ambient noise filter.

    During dictation or file recognition, please pay attention to the following:
    – Do not disconnect, plug in, or change headsets / microphones.
    – Do not remove, plug in or change USB sticks or other external devices – Do not change volume / sound settings.
