I have it plugged into the correct place in the computer tower. I made sure the little volume setting on the microphone cord is On and the volume is set at maximum.
The little microphone icon on the Dragonbar stays gray. I asasume this means the program doesn't recognize the microphone.
I tried doing the volume setting thing as-is, and got volume too low. I tried plugging the microphone in one of the places at the back of the computer (always checking for the one with the microphone or headset icon). I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Dragon on this computer. I installed it on another computer. Nothing helps.
This is not a USB mike, incidentally; it has the two separate prongs. I've tried plugging in one or both, which doesn't work no matteer where I try it.
I have a little USB mike from a different manufacturer. It doesn't work on either computer. No matter what I try, Dragon's microphone icon stays gray and I always get the volume too low error message.

This seems to be a major issue for Dragon. I am using 10.1 in a medical setting. I finally got a headset with two plugs to work as none of three usb headsets would work. Then I bought the Logitech USB Desktop Microphone and after reading the post went to the Accuracy Setting selected the Logitech mic and passed all the tests with no problem. When I spoke into the mic the signal was in the green area but, an error message appeared next to the help button. When I spoke into the mic the normal mode switched to "dictaton not avial able here" Perhaps I misunderstoo the meaning of that message and kept trying to reinstall the microphone. Finally I just opened Word and spoke and there it was!... I really enjoy using Dragon but someone at thei end should write a much better "how too" for the novice.
