What do I do if I'm having microphone issues on the Nintendo DS?
posted on 2014/06/29
Position the DS system about 10 to 12 inches from your mouth.
Make sure that you are in a quiet environment. Ambient background noise affects the voice recognition system.
Try raising your voice slightly if there is no response from the game. Don't yell – yelling may produce distortion and interfere with the voice recognition system.
