Trying to use the Speech Recognition/Voice Commands in OS X Lion on my MacBook Pro and it's not really working out as fluidly as I hoped it would have.
It doesn't really recognize a lot of what I say, and doesn't respond. I've tried calibrating it, but the commands didn't' blink. I set it to passive listening mode so it's always on and activates upon a keyword ("Computer"). Anybody else using this? All help would be greatly appreciated.

If you're talking about what I think you're talking about, that has been around for a really long time (I think since the developer previews of OS X 10.0 in some form or another).
I don't think it's been touched much and is definitely not a largely advertised feature of OS X - just something that's there for people to play with or help people that cannot use a keyboard/mouse well.
I'd hold off on using it until they replace it with Siri. -- University of Southern California - Fight On!
