    Is it safe to install & use Windows Speech Recognition Macros from 2009 with Windows 10?


    Hi there,

    I am a disabled PC user who is heavily reliant on voice recognition and foot pedals and a foot mouse to use my PC. For voice recognition I primarily use Dragon NaturallySpeaking.

    I generally can't play computer games but I would like to. Recently I came across this blog post which implies I might be able to play the computer game XCOM: Enemy Unknown using Windows Speech Recognition, here is the link:http://chrisuzal.com/xcom-enemy-unknown-windows-7-speech-recognition-voice-command-set/.

    The blog post says to use the command set the author has made for the game, I need to install 'Windows Speech Recognition Macros' from Microsoft.com, here is the link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=13045


    The download, although official, comes from 2009 !. Am I safe to install this on Windows 10? I am using Windows 10 Home 64-bit 10.0, Build 18,362. Should this command sets still work in 2020?


    Thanks

    :)

  2. windows speech recognition macros not opening.

    I recently got windows speech recognition macros for my nextbook 10.1 running windows 10. The speech recognition works fine, but if I try to open the macros it doesn't do anything, it doesn't even have an error message. I tried to run as administrator
    and re install it, but it just won't open.
