    I am absolutely certain you have been on the forum long enough to know that we don't start a question with "How to".

    Could Microsoft Translator recognize you correctly when you read poh-dusses in a proper context?

    The question isn't worth pursuing. Speech recognition is an extremely challenging technology that works amazingly well in major languages. It gets a lot of things wrong but can usually produce understandable texts. There's little to be gained by focusing on errors in specific words.

    I think 6 pages is enough. We're all now aware of the limitations of speech recognition software. It's a matter of trial and error by both the speaker and the software.
