Tower 3D Pro voice unstable


Recommended Posts


just downloaded Tower 3D Pro and the voice recognition is behaving very funky.

It understands every word i say and my commands are getting processed like a charm.

But i only get sporadic readbacks. Sometimes airplanes respond and talk to me, sometimes they don't (all in the same session). Which is very annoying because i'm losing track of arrivals etc.

The longer i play, the more silent it gets.

For me it seems to be a coding problem, looks like the speech recognition software is flooding itself.

I set the Priority for towerspeakbridge.exe to "realtime" which solves the problem for 1-2 minutes.

Sometimes the voice recognition stops altogether after some time, which seems to be known issue.


Started the game as administrator, no addons installed. WIndows 7 Ultimate
