Again you have stimulated my thoughts and increased my knowledge. I believe after some experiments that one of my problems is calling the speech utterance several times in succession. The timing just seems to get out of whack since I was suspending and resuming after each. I am combining the multiple utterances into a single one. I will also look at the audio files. It seems that I was resuming recognition in between speech calls causing some recognition of the second speech. Thanks for your guidance. I will be back in touch in the future with questions and progress.
