Microphone not working Yoga 3

2016-11-11, 1:20 AM

Hey all,


I've been trying to use cortana for some time now and the voice recognition never works. I go to "Cortana and Search Settings",  and it shows the voice recognition as being on. Then I click on "Microphone: Make Sure Cortana can hear me" and I'm taken to a troubleshooting page that says "Set up your microphone." When I click that, it takes me to a screen that asks me to read a phrase, but it never registers my voice. The green bar moves slightly sometimes but always still in the red area and it doesn't even move when I screem. I am not on mute or anything. Then an error message comes up telling me it can't hear me. However, when I click on the speaker button and go to "Recording Devices" the microphone comes up under sound and has a small voice recognition bar that goes up when I talk and seems to be fine. So the microphone seems to be working fine there, but just won't recognize my voice when I try to set up Cortana. Any ideas?
