Windows 7: Freezing related to speech recognition?

Freezing related to speech recognition?

I didn't find anything on the above problem by searching the forums, but as a constant WSR user (translator), I experience this every day: e.g., today I had been dictating into Word 2007 for over an hour. I activated WSR corrections, and suddenly realized the pc had gone zombie on me. Other times, I can simply be dictating when this freezing occurs.

Googling outside the forums turned up some hits indicating possible memory leaks connected with Vista, as well as a Hot Fix for this, but as I have Win 7, that fix is not available. Other hits stated this problem had mainly to do with Win 7 64-bit.

Are others on these forums experiencing freezing while using WSR? Any ideas or pointers?

I have no way to know whether memory leaks are involved. How can I find out?

I can't find an audio driver specific to Windows 7, but here's one for Vista: Lenovo Support & downloads - ADI SoundMAX High Definition audio driver for Windows Vista - ThinkCentre M55, M55p

Try installing that and see if the problem goes away.

You can also try this program to try to find a more recent driver, after you install the one I linked to: Driver Easy - Free Driver Detect & Download Software

Thanks for pointing this driver out to me. As luck would have it, my HD crashed just after I installed it, so it's taken me a long time to get Win 7 reinstalled and "re-drivered". DriverEasy certainly helped there.

Since the only difference in drivers is the ADI SoundMax one, and my PC has stopped BSOD-ing, your suggestion did they trick.

Hope I can return the favor someday.

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?
