2.0 out of 5 stars Rosetta Stone is not very good. July 7, 2011
By Steve
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
Let me preface this by saying I speak five different languages, English is my native tongue but I also speak French, German, Latin and Mandarin. I am very well familiar with pronounciation of vowels and dipthongs not normally found in my native tongue.

That having been said, I find the Rosetta Stone software's ability to rate my speech as extremely poor. It often refuses to recognize my voice pronouncing words (and even single syllables). Moreover, when I repeat a word or phrase into the microphone, it often does not recognize that I have stopped speaking, and the software simply sits there doing nothing. If it were human it would be wearing an idiot's grin. I am not exaggerating when I say that I repeat a one-syllable word and the program sometimes takes up to 20 seconds to acknowledge it (whether I pronounced the word correctly or not is immaterial). Note that I am using a state-of-the-art PC, so hardware isn't the issue.

Furthermore, the Rosetta Stone "immersion" approach to language learning is not good for anyone who has learned a second or third language through formal lessons. The software is designed to NOT take your native tongue into account, but the only benefit of that is to Rosetta Stone, NOT the learner. Many languages have sets of rules regarding gender agreement or unorthodox pronounciation; most languages have regular rules about conjugation. RS imparts NONE of these rules; doing so would require an explanation in every native tongue. Instead, you are left to figure it out on your own. This seriously impedes the process. What this product will do is teach you to speak BAD Swedish.

In short, if this is your first attempt at learning a non-native language, it might work for you. But if you have any experience in multiple languages, RS will likely leave you feeling frustrated.

Rosetta Success saysOctober 18, 2011
Hi Steve!
I'm sorry to hear that the speech recognition wasn't working correctly for you! Here are a few tips to help optimize the speech recognition:

- Make sure you're using a USB headset
- Make sure your headset's microphone is positioned beside your mouth and approximately 1 inch away from your cheek
- During speaking exercises, wait 2 seconds after the beep to begin speaking
- Make sure your USB-headset is your default sound input/output device
- Lower your Speech Precision Level
1. Click the Preferences icon (the circle with 3 horizontal lines).
2. Click Set Preferences from the drop-down menu.
3. Click the Audio Settings tab.
4. Use the slider to lower your Speech Precision Level.
5. Click Apply Changes.

I hope this information helps!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor technical support April 26, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
We bought this product 5 years ago prior to a trip to Stockholm. It is Version 2; I think they are now on Version 3. Started it and basically learned to say, "A boy in a boat." Got very busy with family matters and put it aside for the time, thinking I could go back to it at any time. My computer crashed and I got a new one. Finally got time and am planning a trip to Stockholm again. Got it out tried to install with no luck. Called support. Apparently my version is no longer supported. So got sent to another operator, who was very nice, but was limited in what she could offer to help me. Was informed that I could upgrade to the current version for $49.99. I was very disappointed that I could not use the program for which I had already paid a fairly substantial price. How much would it cost the company to help me install my current software or send me a new disk? Be aware that you might not be able to re-install your software in the future.
