    Does anyone else despise the Speech Recognition app as much as I do?

    Apparently, someone at Microsoft thought it was a good idea to remove the simple little microphone that made it possible for me to ask questions in the Search field, and in Gmail replies.

    What a mistake. Instead of simply speaking into the microphone, now I'm supposed to learn fourteen (14) pages of commands. So, my work-around is to just type everything, it's much easier. In other words, I don't use the (upgrade?????) at all.

    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:
    (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


    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)
