Using the SpeechWare TableMike with a Mac

Although most of the online reviews pertain to use of the SpeechWare TableMike (3-in-1 and 6-in-1) with Windows-based computers and we have done most of our testing and online demonstrations in this context, these products will also work beautifully with an Apple computer.

For a review of this product when used with a Mac, please read this MacWorld Review.

Preparing your Mac OS for use with a TableMike

The following brief adjustment should be made when preparing to use a TableMike with your Mac:

  1. Go to the Utilities folder in your Applications folder, and launch 'Audio MIDI Setup'. Select 'USB TableMike' from the list of devices.
  2. Click on the 'Input' tab, then choose '44000.0 Hz' and '1ch-16bit' from the Format menu.

  3. Quit the Setup.

Setting up the Microphone for the TableMike on a Mac

Because of the unique "auto-gain" technology on the 2nd Generation TableMikes, it is recommended that you follow the procedure listed here when doing the initial microphone set-up when using it with Dragon Dictate®. This is necessary in order to give the TableMike time to achieve maximum sensitivity before initiating the volume setting procedure.

  1. Choose Tools > Microphone Setup to calibrate the TableMike™
  2. Click on the red icon to enable the microphone
  3. Wait 30 seconds in silence until the gain setting reaches the maximum level of
  4. At this point, start reading the text to have Dragon Dictate® adjust the TableMike's volume properly

After following the above procedures you can expect excellent results with any of the SpeechWare microphones and with the soon-to-be-released SpeechWare USB Pod.
