Enhance the effectiveness of spoken commands System
Under the "Listening" tab of Speech Recognition in System Preferences, there is a "Volume ..." button. Here you can set the volume of the microphone, so when you speak at a normal level, your input is always in the green (optimal) section.

When properly set, this offers quite an improvement to the responsiveness of Speech Commands.

Yes, it is the same for all usb microphones. It is frustrating.
When I take a look in the classic control panel "Sound", I can
see that the slider is way down, which perhaps gives an
explanation why I have to shout into the mic, when trying to
use, for an example Quicktime Broadcaster. So, is there a way
to hack this??
