my brother has one, and he has it set, so that you press esc and talk, just play around with the settings a bit. Make sure you say the commands that are listed and say them clearly.

Is the mic just a standard analogue, or a USB?

the iMic thing i mentioned is what my band music teacher uses on his mac laptop because we have to record ourselves on this software and turn it in so...sounds like you may be needing that piece of hardware
