Windows 7: Speech Recognition

Speech Recognition

Hey all =)

First of all, I adquired my copy of Windows 7(English) and a valid key thru my University, after I successfully installed it I applied a Language Pack for Portuguese using Vistalizator.

My question is: Is there any way(and if there is, how) I can use Speech Recognition without changing the OS language back to English? I dont mind that the language it recognizes is english, as long as I can keep the Portuguese Language in the OS and have a working speech recognition.

Any help on the issue?
P.S. -> I apologize if this is in the wrong section, but this seemed like a OS Customization

Have you tried to set up your speech recognition and are you encountering problems? Setting speech options.

IMHO Microsofts speech recognition is so poor the operating system might very well not be able to distinguish which language is being spoken anyway, try it out on any basis you like - it sucks...

I am not sure what your problem is. Windows Seven Speech Recognition is optimized for English, so what ever language pack you have installed, it always recognices English.

When you start Speech Recognition first time in a non-English system, it gives you this message:

Just click OK, go through the following tutorial to teach your voice and accent to Speech Recognition and start using it.

Problem is that when I go to the Speech Recognition on the Control Panel I get this:

After exploring a bit I found another menu, which led me to another dead-end..

If anyone knows how to make it work(preferably without making it English), I'd be very much appreciated =)
