I have a labtec AM-240 microphone. It is not USB, it is 3.5 mm. Plugged it into the microphone port located on the back of my Dekk Dimension C521, running Vista home, and speech recognition did not recognize it. Plugged it into the microphone port on the front and it did. Hope this helps.

Does labtec webcam 1200 have a built in microphone? How can I tell and if my own pc has one or not?

The labtec webcam 1200 does not have a built in microphone. Reference:
Most desktops do not have a built in microphone, with exceptions of the ones that come built into the monitor. You find that most sound cards have an input jack to connect a microphone. To be sure if your computer does or does not, the make and model of your computer would be needed to check the computer specifications.

How to install to computer?

Check the Device Manager to see if it is discovered and connected with drivers installed. Otherwise, install the disk that came with the microphone to install the drivers. If it didn't come with the disk, reboot your computer with the microphone connected to the computer - upon boot, the computer should prompt and let you know a new device has been found and will install the drivers automatically.

Computer will not recognize my labtec am-242 microphone

Rt. click the volume control icon from your notification area or the control panel and choose advance settings and make sure the microphone line in level is not at zero. Open your recording program (like sound recorder from Accessories>Entertainment) and you should be able to record sound input from your microphone.
If you're still having trouble, follow the steps here or here (
Also be aware that there's a great freeware recorder available online called Audacity available from here

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Labtec Verse 524 Consumer Microphone

Almost all desktop microphones for the computer are not amplified (which means that they do not have their own power source). Instead the computer's sound card provides the amplification for the microphone. All you need to do is plug it in, and you're all set.

Installing Microphone

Just plug it into the mic input on the sound card. All recent operating systems support it by default.
