Speech recognition not working

I had this same error. I have mic detection indicated and it plays back the test sample with my audio (kinda crappy) in it. What do I need to check next becuase that is only error and it’s not detecting words.

Hi Jtex - I split this out to a new topic

Have you had a look at our Audio Troubleshooting Guide already?

Does the wake word “Hey Mycroft” work?

Depending on how “crappy” the audio is the STT might have trouble performing recognition on it.
