    Has anyone found that voice recognition for Chess is absolutely rubbish? I am obeying the help file in terms of what to say, but whenever I do, the voice recognition prompt just says "???". I've tried in English English and Nasaly American English and I just get ??? all the time.

    Can someone point me on the right track?

    Aha, okay, I have solved the problem if anyone wants to know.

    It seems to be a problem with the internal microphone volume. If you got to system prefs and then Speech (fourth row down) there is an option to calibrate the input volume of the microphone, together with some phrases you can use for recognition. Once you sort that out, it's plain sailing.
