For the last two or three days I have had a problem with the voice recognition in Chrome.
When trying to record it hangs the computer for 5-10 seconds (everything halts, e.g. my desktop clock) then continues, usually with the "unable to catch that phrase" message.
This used to happen perhaps once in ten or so occasions, which I was able to put up with, but now it happens about 9 out of ten times, which ruins the learning process.
I've tried it in Firefox, which works fine (records & plays back OK but lacks the voice recognition function) so I will use that for now.
I don't recall any updates to Chrome, but if the software uses Flash or Java then I have updated those, although that was some days before the problem started.
Has anyone else started having this problem, & does IT have any suggestions?
