Got an update and the mic stopped working in VoiceAttack (Elite Dangerous). Thought I'd share what I had to do to fix. Control Panel-->Ease of Access-->Speech Recognition Click "Advanced speech options on the left" Then "Advanced" at the bottom of the Speech Properties menu that pops up. Then select "Use preferred audio input device"
That's it. For some reason the update changed this to use my motherboard mic which isn't connected. Hopefully this will help someone out.
