*First of all, there is a hardware issue. One needs a very good microphone. Avoid cheaper microphones since they tend to pick up a lot of background
*Secondly create a voice profile and train the computer to identify the speaker’s voice and pronunciation. There is a speech training tutorial..

->Click Control Panel

-> Click Ease of Access
