Windows 7: speech recognition, change language?

speech recognition, change language?

I use English speech recognition in Windows 7 Home Premium.

Is it possible to install German speech recognition (at least for dictating letters, not necessarily for giving commands)? How?

Thanks in advance

Windows Speech Recognition is available only when the language of the operating system matches the language of Windows Speech Recognition. You can change the language of the operating system by installing a language pack from Windows Update. If you install the language pack of a supported Windows Speech Recognition language, you can then use Windows Speech Recognition for that language if that is also the language of the operating system.
The above is from here: Although it says for Vista it applies to 7 as well.
The Windows Speech Recognition language must be the same as the operating system language in Windows Vista

Thanks for your help.
Following your suggestion, I found that in windows 7 HOME, one cannot install another language pack.
Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise.

You could probably find another Speech Recognition program with a variety of languages by just Googling.

Let me google that for you

Does anyone use speech recognition? What have your experiences been? Just curious to see how many people go "UBER LAZY" with a wireless headset like me. Have done some things with it and it seems a little more advanced than when I frist tried it on Vista. Any thoughts?
