I wanted to use JingProject ( to create a small tutorial for one of my favorite programs. I could not get my microphone to work. Help under start>control panel>speech suggested that I do this:
“Open Speech in Control Panel, and then click the Speech Recognition tab.” Only problem is I didn’t have such a tab!

I found a post on-line where numerous Dell owners were complaining that Dell laptops don’t support external microphones. I was getting worried, when I came across a post that solve the issue. It said:
1) unplug your external mic
2) open volume control
3) switch it to recording control (menu options/properties/recording)
I then ticked microphone, plugged my microphone and tried Jinging it — woo hoo, it worked and my tutorials now have sound.

Google is always my friend! If you are having trouble getting an external microphone working with a Dell laptop, try the above procedure.
