SayIt Error: No Sound Came From Your Microphone when Running Voice Shortcut

  • Dark
    Light

Issue:

When I try to run a voice shortcut in SayIt, the shortcut audio meter displays the message, "No sound came from your microphone."

sayit_my_SC_NoInput

This is a "no input" message which indicates that SayIt was not able to hear what you said. 

For dictation issues, see SayIt Cannot Hear Me
What to do:
  • Make sure that you press and hold the shortcut button or hotkey the entire time that you say the shortcut name. If you are not speaking while you press the button or hotkey to record, SayIt may consider the silence an audio error.
  • Make sure SayIt can hear you. Try a dictation. Press your dictation button or hotkey and speak. If SayIt cannot hear you at all, see SayIt Cannot Hear Me
