    Win 10 Speech Recognition

    I was going to try the settings one more time as you suggested. However I ran into deadlock even at the first step:



    “…Select the
    Speech Recognition > Set up Speech Recognition
    page…”



    No such choice as “Set up Speech Recognition”. How can I send you the screen shot?

    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.

    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)
