    When you set up Speech Recognition in Windows 10, it lets you control your PC with your voice alone, without needing a keyboard or mouse.

    Using only your voice, you can open menus, click buttons and other objects on the screen, dictate text into documents, and write and send emails. Just about anything you do with your keyboard and mouse can be done with only your voice.

    Speech Recognition is only available for the following languages: English (United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India, and Australia), French, German, Japanese, Mandarin (Chinese Simplified and Chinese Traditional), and Spanish.

    Vista and speech recognition

    Just wondering if some one could help with a issue i am getting with this.

    speech recognition could not start because the language configuration is not supported.

    recognizer language must match the language of the user interface. Please change the recognizer language in the speech recognition control panel under advanced options.

    As far as i know it's setup right ? Anyone have any insight on solving this ?..

    No speech recognition at all


    Hi, this may be of interest:
    Installing additional language packs for Windows 10 speech recognition random ranting

    This has downloads, + a complete list of languages availablefor Win 10:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=27224
    (but note the date)

    fwiw I just tried it- my locale, speech, display language etc are set to UK English. (Which took some doing this time, or something was slightly messed up).

    If I type speech in Cortana's search box, say, I get Windows Speech Recognition as top search.

    I use Classic Shell, with the Control Panel expanded, so in a second or less I can see 'Speech Recognition' listed there.

    Similarly, if I type 'Speech' in Settings I can easily see Speech Recognition.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    With the speech recognition bar displayed, task manager shows:
    SpeechRuntime.exe in C:\Windows\System32\Speech_OneCore\Common ..........

    sapisvr.exe in C:\Windows\Speech\Common

    running.

    =================================================
    Some (older) search results:

    I came across this for Win 7
    Speech Recognition - Language Configuration is Not Supported Error Fix - Windows 7 Help Forums
    - maybe there's an updated one here (see Tutorials).

    There are a couple of helpful links at the end of this (but Win 7 again)

  6. No speech recognition at all


    Hi, thank you for the useful information.
    Personally, I also use ClassicShell with CPanel enabled, and I do have the root "Speech Recognition" icon, but I can't open it, and I can't access the further settings (such as configuring ASR Language or training your mic) - and of course I've tried a million ways of accessing the settings *Wink
    I did set my display language and my input language to en-US, as well as my locale, to no avail (and restarting didn't do the trick either) - and then back to de-DE (which is also supported) - the ASR language settings, however, remain elusive^^
    I have also tried having ctfmon running and the input language bar displayed in various states

    I have downloaded different language packs, but some of them would not install, the installer disappears after "gathering required information"

    Thank you for sending the executable and service, that was exactly what i was looking for!
    I'm not at home right now, I'll check in a couple of hours - but that looks immensely helpful already. I did find the speech folders in Sys32 and SysWOW myself before and tried changing access permissions, but to no avail.

    I hope running the SAPI server will do the trick - I was expecting exactly something like this to be missing or blocked from/in my system
