Got it working and I like it!! It was not so much the print function as it was getting the number into a variable. Now of course the next step, rather than using the EZB microphone use the computer's microphone or one step farther to use a USB bluetooth wireless microphone/headphone that you can wear and walk around with. I remember you mentioning that Bing speech recognition was the best so if it's possible to have the option of choosing which speech recognition that you would like to use. Is it possible to have multiple bluetooth items working at one time? microphone, laser distance, joystick etc.
