So tonight for whatever reason, the Microphone Gods decided that my wireless Bluetooth microphones will not be allowed to connect with my laptop, and I had work that I had to get done tonight, before midnight.  I had a choice, drive 50 miles round trip to the office and pick up the Phillips Speechmike.

OR

Several months ago, I was going through old equipment and discarding things from the last 20 years, I found the old VXI Translator USB Sound Card and the Sennheiser ME3 microphone that I purchased from Knowbrainer in approximately 2004, I kept them for reasons of cluttering up my garage so that people will be confused if they break in to steal anything.

 

So, I plugged them into my Dell laptop, it installed, and I'll be damned the thing still works.

 

I couldn't get it to work with Dragon Medical versions 4, 7, and 8, but it would probably be more appropriate to say that I couldn't get those versions to work, and the microphone was fine.

 

I even dictated this with it.

 

I think I will keep it until I die, so my kids can wonder what the heck it is when they clean the garage out.

The VXi Translator USB soundcard utilizes the same Texas Instruments patented sound chip as all of today's USB soundcards. It is about 3 times larger than today's equivalent systems and a tad clumsy with its 4 wires but accuracy is top shelf. The same can be said for your Sennheiser ME3 so your sound system stacks up to any of today's offerings.

"stacks up to any of today's offerings"

That's what I tell my patients about myself, when compared to younger doctors.

I'm about 40 pounds larger, but and progressively more clumsy, but top shelf otherwise.
