I tried a lot to install palaver speech recognition software. But I have failed many a time. But eventually I installed it. However, I cannot use it! That's the problem. Tell me what to do?

Could be that you have not pressed the shorcut again? Remember, you press, for instance, "Ctrl+L" to trigger the microphone, and again "Ctrl+L" to stop it)
