unable to start sound record device


Recommended Posts

I have installed Express Dictate on a Mac 10.6.8. It recorded one time only and now I get the message "unable to start sound record device." My computer is able to record from Quick Time but not Express Dictate. There seems to be a disconnect with this software and the computer. Any help out there?

You guys should make sure the program is using the correct recording device. You should be able to go to Preferences/Options > ¨AUDIO¨ and under the recording section make sure the correct recording device is selected. You also need to make sure the device is set in Mac and Windows as the default input device. You might also want to make sure the program has permission to access the Microphone if you are using internal microphone. 

If you still have issues you might want to contact NCH technical support here: https://www.nch.com.au/support/index.html
