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,

Hey Jaime – Unfortunately, I’m not available. I’d recommend contacting Citrix support.
