    I'm struggling too unfortunately and I apologise cos I'm sure its me: :(

    08:38:04.560 : Unable to initialise speech engine. Check that SpeechPlatformRuntime.msi is installed. It can be downloaded from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=27225

    These are the only speech-related apps in my apps list (installed today):

    Help appreciated. CC has worked perfectly for me since the very earliest days... now I'm being ghosted and I feel SO ALONE. :(

    Please try unchecking "Prefer Windows speech recogniser" preference, and see if initialization goes through.

    EDIT: My guess you also need en-AU language pack, not en-GB for your settings to work

    @Skidmark

    [edit]

    i think tonight's release should squash the last of these annoying speech recognition initialisation bugs

    A small question: Is it possible to disable the "motivational messages"? Like "don't be intimidated", "let's see how wide you can make this thing"... etc.?

    Not sure if this was reported.

    The spotter keep keeps saying he will spot even when the mic is muted.

    Here is the log from the console. This is with crewcheif in off status. Something is triggering the spotter.
    when you start the application its pretty constant.

    These are speech recognition false positives. I recommend training the windows speech recognition engine or changing the app's "Prefer Windows speech recognition engine" property to false

    @mr_belowski I seem.to be having issues whereby my push to talk isn't working. I use the press and release mode. Button is mapped correctly and I have tried other buttons. I get the radio beep, channel is opened and then immediately closed again. Any clues as to what could be going on?

    this is caused by the button repeating. There's a bug in the app where it's supposed to wait like 3 or 4 tenths of a second after button press before listening for another button press but in this particular case, it isn't. You might be able to get it to work by pressing and releasing the button *very* quickly.

    I'll add the missing wait to the next release - it'll still misbehave if you hold your finger on the button for more than half a second but it should fix your issue

    Ok i’ll check to see if it is set to that. I haven’t changed anything recently.

    yeah, we changed the default to be the Windows built-in engine which is potentially far more accurate - I recommend training speech recognition in Windows as a first step (using the same mic you use for racing). If that doesn't fix the issue, changing that property value will make the app use the older speech recognition system

    That fixed the repeating. I wonder if a windows update did something with that. I’ll have to train it as well. I’ve never used the speech recognition before using your app

    No, we made a bad call at the Crew Chief Mega Corp - switching to a different default speech recognition engine was a mistake I think

    Can you add an even longer wait...like 1sec? Thereby reducing the chance of a held button even more? I mean in use a person would never press twice within a second anyway.....

    yeah, probably, will cogitate on it
