Hi I recently purchased an HP Pavilion 17-f061us laptop and I notice that when I talk (to dictate) the laptop has a very poor ratio of words being detected properly. The room has to be very quiet and even then one out of 5 words is not the correct word that I said.
I also have a Samsung smartphone and my apple ipad and they have no problem with dictation, even when there is loud sounds in the background.
I was wondering if the reason the HP is so bad picking up words is because of the mic placement or the quality. I was wondering if I buy a 3.5mm external mic or even a usb mic if that would help the words get translated more successfully? Or is the limitation inside the laptop- in which case an external mic would not fix anything?
