    How to Set Up Speech Recognition in Windows 10


    Windows Speech Recognition 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.

    This tutorial will show you how to set up Speech Recognition to use for your account in Windows 10.

    *note You can also convert spoken words into text anywhere on your PC with dictation.

    Here's How:

    1. Connect the microphone you want to use with Speech Recognition.

    2. Start Speech Recognition. (see screenshots below)

    *note If you have already setup Speech Recognition, then this will only start Speech Recognition instead of opening the "Set up Speech Recognition" wizard.

    8. Select Enable document review or Disable document review for what you want, and click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)

    *note You can improve the computer's ability to recognize spoken words by allowing Speech Recognition to review documents and email in your search index. Speech Recognition will learn words and phrases to better understand you when you speak.

    You will always be able to enable or disable document review at will in Advanced speech options.

    9. Select Use manual activation mode or Use voice activation mode for what you want, and click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)

    *note Use manual activation mode - Windows Speech Recognition turns off when you say the "Stop Listening" voice command, and must be turned on by clicking on the microphone button or pressing the Ctrl+Windows keys

    Use voice activation mode - Speech Recognition goes into sleep mode when not in use, and can be activated by saying the "Start Listening" voice command.

    You will always be able to enable or disable voice activation at will in Advanced speech options.

    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)

    Set Up Speech Recognition in Windows 10

    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?
