Voice Recognition Development - problems working with SDK/emulator

 I'm attempting to create an application that utilizes the speech
recognizer (which is referenced how to use here [1]), but I am having
issues getting it to work with the emulator. I've gotten to the point
where I needed to install Voice Search and implement the
RecognizerIntent class, but as soon as I make it begin recognizing it
will stop unexpectedly and require me to force close it. In fact,
opening the Voice Search app by itself causes a crash.

Is there any way to get this to work in the emulator? I don't own an
android device, but I'd still want to develop the app on my computer
if at all possible.

Secondly, is there any way to connect a microphone to my computer and
have the emulator pick up the sound?

Thanks for the help,
