Windows 7: Speech Recognition Error.

09 Feb 2009   #11


The same error used to occur in Vista. I spent a week training the voice recognition only to lose it all after a reboot

Once the novelty wears off. It's not worth the hassle

Windows 7 RTM

Great, I can add a "me too".

Win 7 Pro x86 EN-US
Formats: German (Austria)
Location: Austria
Keyboard: German (Austria) [default], English (US)
System Locale: German (Austria)

I tried various combinations (rebooting every time) but still I can't get speech recognition to start. Hardware-wise everything seems to be okay as I can complete the tutorial. IIRC Vista Business worked on this machine with the same locale settings.

It does NOT work with my Windows 7, 64 bit.
All the lessons work fine and type out without error. But in real life it does NOT work.
Do any of you use it with 64 BIT?????????

Put the orignal CD/DVD in the drive:
1. Press install
2. press update

Good luck

Windows 7 64 bit

I, like so many others, went through dozens of posts about this problem. My conclusion is that it is limited to 64 bit versions of Win 7, but that's just my opinion.

I tried everything I read... switched languages, reboot, switch back, etc.

Lots of stuff was suggested. I resisted putting the original Windows 7 install disc into my drive. Ugh, a re0-install of some sort. Great.

Finally, after exhausting all of the suggestions that were posted, I chucked my windows seven installed desk into my drive. I performed the installation that did not completely erase my current windows installation. It will be obvious to you when you have to make that choice.

I am quite happy to be able to dictate this post to you! It completely fixed my inability to start speech recognition AND it had no apparent impact on the rest of my system.

I wish everyone the best of luck in fixing their incredibly frustrating problem. I know it's spooky to perform any sort of installation from the windows disc, but if you're desperate then go for it.
