I get the error: “A easyVRshield/bridge device has been found, but the bridge software is not responding or it is outdated”

The error you get could be due to:

1) You are trying to connect EasyVR Commander with the jumper on SW position but you didn’t first upload to your Arduino a sketch with “Bridge” functionality – any example provided with the EasyVR Arduino Library have this functionality as well as the code generated by the EasyVR Commander;

2) The soldering you have done to install the EasyVR module on top of the Shield adapter is not perfect, please double check it. If you have doubts you can re-do the soldering following one of the tutorials available on-line (example 1, example 2)

Please note that all areas marked in red in the following pictures must be well soldered:

EV3 Shield - BOTTOM solderingEV3 Shield - TOP soldering

Please note also that the strips must be inserted from the bottom side and soldered on the top side of the EasyVR 3 module, as in the following picture:
