General updates and considerations

  • Tested speech recognition and works fairly well

  • The surface of the microphone doesn’t need to be completely touching the throat or too tight to work ­čÖé

  • It is difficult to prototype with tape on fabric, get an appropriate duct tape.

  • By using the throat microphone as a collar it could generate discomfort. An option to avoid this is to remove the stiff part and leave only the cables.
