    click "additional device properties" (right side, under "Related Settings")
    Open "advanced" tab in the new window
    uncheck "allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"
    Do have issues as well that CC is not recognizing my commands although "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" is already disabled. Do have discord running in parallel but it is configured to listen only on push-to-talk which is mapped to a different button.

    Any other advise is highly appreciated. Did work great in the past. Not sure what changed

    I too have the same issue. Have talk to chief mapped to a button everything works fine but once I start up Iracing it all stops working. CC seems to only recognise the PPT when it has active focus which it does not have as Iracing has it. If I click on CC when in Iracing it works but then I crash lol.

    If you're using Windows speech recognition (Property "prefer Windows speech recogniser" is enabled) then you need to complete the Windows speech training (all phases) using the mic you'll use while racing. The app will log attempts to make voice commands including which recogniser is doing the work, the recognition confidence and the threshold being used so it should help you track down what's going on.

    The app will use the default sound recording device as configured in the Windows Sounds control panel - ensure your mic is set to be the default before starting the app.

    Most commands won't work if you're not in a game session (because the app won't have data) but the "can you hear me?" command will work at any time (as long as you've started the app) - use this to check the wiring is correct

    Thanks mr_belowski for the tip, I have since changed mine to prefer windows speech, done the speech training sessions a few times, and things are definitely working better for me now. A side problem for me is the mic on my astro A40 headset, barely hits 10% input volume at normal speaking volume and theres no way to increase - so I would say my problem is probably not related to crew chief itself.

    The long and short of it is now it works nearly every time, just have to learn the commands a bit better

    Can the voice commands be seen as a overlay in VR please? I have poor memory.

    With old versions of Crew chief, he could understand me %90 of the times, since a year ago or so with newer versions, he only understands %20 of the times, having to keep repeating myself till he does.
