Speech Listener Problem


When I turn on Speech so that the Mac will listen, the little microphone window show up on screen and it works fine for a while . . . then it disappears ! I have to go in to the System Prefs > Speech window and turn it OFF and then turn it back ON for it to work again. Any ideas what is happening here ? Thanks Gary
This has nothing to do with programming. Why do posts like these always end up on this forum? This should be moved to the Mac OS X software forum where it is more likely to be answered.
Moved from Programming to System & Software.

Because people don't take the time to read the forum descriptions, and if you look at the vast majority of miss-posts they're by new users (who have less than 10 posts).
