as expected .First lemme explain what a speech recognition software is, it's generally used for converting voice to text or vice-versa.Like how computers have reduced a lot of paper work
for all of us it helps to reduce the amount of data that we key-in on a daily basis.The software
has to be trained with the voice of the person who uses it.The flip side is it can't recognize the
voice of the person who trained if it sounds very different. I still remember a friend of mine
trained the kit and when she was having a severe cold it failed to recognize her voice.
