Oh, very sorry, dumb of me not to go back. The original ‘merge’ of the sample app with my Coronalabs framework DOES work, it hears the words. Certainly points to a bug of mine. I’ll see if I can just go back and build up from there, but it will take me a few hours, have to do it tomorrow. Sorry about that, I should have tried. Though, I still don’t understand what is different, both are pretty bare bones.
