    How to Create a Start Speech Recognition Shortcut in Windows 10


    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.

    Speech Recognition shortcut?


    Is there a way to make a shortcut to put on the desktop for Microsoft's built-in Speech Recognition? The best I can find is creating this shorcut:

    C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{58E3C745-D971-4081-9034-86E34B30836A}

    but that opens up the entire "configure Speech Recognition experience" window in control panel. I want to make a shortcut that directly starts the Speech Recognition, just like clicking "Start Speech Recognition" does in that control panel shortcut. Is there a way to do this?

    Speech Recognition shortcut?


    I am trying for a Desktop Shortcut which enables Speech Recognition AND opens the Control Widget (the oval with the Microphone in the circle to control on-off, etc.).

    When I program in the suggested shortcut, the Control Widget does not appear and I'm not sure that SR is even turned on=no way to know since no way to turn on microphone that I know of without the Widget.

    How can I enable SR and the Widget to appear through a desktop shortcut? Thanks. Windows 10 64 bit latest updates installed.

    Speech Recognition shortcut on the desktop?


    Several threads suggest making a shortcut using the following string to turn on Windows 10 native Speech Recognition:

    %windir%\Speech\Common\sapisvr.exe -SpeechUX

    However, I am trying for a Desktop Shortcut which enables Speech Recognition AND opens the Control Widget (the oval with the Microphone in the circle to control Mic on-off, etc.).

    When I program in the suggested shortcut, the Control Widget does not appear and I'm not sure that SR is even turned on =no way to know since no way to turn on microphone that I know of without the Widget.

    How can I enable SR to turn on, and the Widget to appear, through a desktop shortcut?

    Also, I am just beginning to use this Windows native Speech Recognition, so I'm not too familiar with it yet but early results are promising. I have always used Dragon but have given up on that. I use speech recognition for voice to text dictation and not commands controlling the PC, etc.

    I am gravitating toward the old Speech Recognition and not Speech Services (Win-H). Why? Because as I understand it, Speech Services (Win-H) relies on the Cloud back and forth, while Speech Services is wholly within the PC. Would rather not tie up Internet resources which might slow the process of dictation voice to text.

    Any comments if the Cloud slows this down and whether your experience is that Speech Services is more, or less, accurate / easy to use than Win-H.

    BTW, I have pretty much disabled Cortana, so maybe this disables Win-H, but I might reenable Cortana if Win-H is much better.

    Thanks.

    I have Windows 10 64 bit latest updates installed.

    • Select Advance speech options.
