Strange Problem with Microphone
« on: May 02, 2013, 02:30:57 AM »
Hi all. This is my first post. I just bought a Asus Google Nexus 7 3G a couple of days ago, which works well except there's a strange problem with the microphone. I have googled around but does not find anything similar to my problem.

It would *seem* that the speaker does not work: it doesn't work in Skype, I could not record voice, and when I say "Google" on Google Now, nothing happens. If I were to press the microphone icon on the search bar, it immediately pops up message saying "Didn't catch that, try speaking again"... I didn't even get any chance to speak?

Anyway, I would have concluded that the speaker is not working, *except* that it *does* work on my personal assistant app speaktoit, extremely well in fact. Thus it is not a hardware problem.

So that's my strange problem: microphone does not seem to be working *except* on speaktoit, what's going on?  :(

I don't use the Speaktoit Assistant, but it may override the native Google voice control, you can test it by temporarily removing the Speaktoit app and checking to see if Google voice control returns.

Opps. In the above description all mentions of "speaker" should mean microphone... :-)
I don't think it's the problem of Speaktoit over-writing though, since I never get google voice control working even prior to downloading Speaktoit.

Hmm... I force stopped Speaktoit and it works now. So I think you are right!
But that leaves me puzzled why I couldn't get Google Now to work before I first installed Speaktoit, oh well, at least the problem is solved now :-) Thanks!
