Citrix Philips SpeechMike III USB Redirection

Philips SpeechMike III

Tested on model LFH3500 with MModal. If the device isn’t passed through to the VDA as a Generic USB device, the buttons on the microphone will not function.

  • Client USB device optimization rules = Mode=00000001 VID=0911 PID=0C1C #Philips SpeechMike III
    • Mode=00000001 disables optimization

    Corey, good morning. I am struggling with getting my own Speechmike III to route into Citrix as a generic device. I’ve tried all of your steps and it still being routed as optimized. Would you be willing to assist me in getting this to work? Thanks,
