Configuring Performance Options
Nuance Speech Recognition, Verifier, and Vocalizer software works best when the server
is set to give the best performance to programs rather than background services.
In programs mode, the Windows operating system provides more frequent but smaller time
slices during thread switching. In background services mode, the Windows operating
system provides longer and less frequent time slices. Therefore, if you run Windows with
background services mode, Vocera badges may experience choppy audio.
To set Windows performance options for the Vocera Voice Server,
perform the following steps:
Choose Start >Settings
The System Properties dialog box appears.
Under Performance, click Settings.
The Performance Options dialog box appears.
Click the Advanced tab.
In the Processor Scheduling box, click
Making this selection provides more processor resources to the Vocera Voice Server instead of resources going to background services.
Under Memory Usage, click Programs.
Making this selection provides more system memory to the Vocera Voice Server instead of the system cache.
A dialog box with the information to restart the computer for the changes to take
effect is displayed.
The dialog box is closed
In the Performance box, click
In the System Properties box, click
Restart the computer.
