How to Fix the Speech Recognition "Language Configuration is Not Supported" Error

information   Information
This tutorial will help show you a few solutions that can be done to fix when you try to start Speech Recognition and get the error message below.

Quote:
Speech Recognition could not start because the language configuration is not supported.

The recognizer language must match the language of the user interface. Please change the recognizer language in the Speech Recognition control panel under Advanced Options.
One or more of the solutions below may need to be applied to fix this error message. Start with SOLUTION 1 and work your way down, and stop when the error is fixed and stops displaying when you start Speech Recognition.
