Newbie EasyVR Shield Help

Hello, I am pretty new to Arduino. I want to use the EasyVR shield so that I can make basic voice commands to turn on specific LEDs.

Using the shield requires you to download the EasyVR commander to train specific commands. I have created several commands (i.e. RedLED, GreenLED, etc.). The commander recognizes my voice successfully and I am able to generate code. However, once I get the code and upload it to my board with the EasyVR shield on it, the board doesn't seem to pick up any of my commands or any words I say at all according to the serial monitor. The EasyVR is detected, but for some reason my commands aren't. The mic is plugged in properly so I don't know what the problem is.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :smiley:
