You can use your voice to control your computer. You can say commands that the computer responds to, and you can dictate text to your computer. For more information on what you can do with Windows speech recognition, see what can I do with speech recognition?

Before you start using speech recognition, you must set up your computer for Windows speech recognition. There are three steps to set up speech recognition: set up your microphone, learn how to talk to your computer, and train your computer to understand your speech.

Before you begin, make sure that your microphone is connected to your computer.

Configure your microphone

  1. Click Start, type: speech recognition., then press on enter

  2. Click Configure microphone.

  3. Follow the instructions on the screen.


    • The success of speech recognition is directly related to the quality of the microphone you use. The two most common types of microphones for speech recognition are headset microphones and desktop microphones. Headset microphones are better suited to work with speech recognition because they are less likely to pick up outside sounds.

Learn how to talk to your computer

  1. Windows comes with a speech training tutorial to teach you the commands used with speech recognition. The tutorial takes about 30 minutes to complete. Follow the steps below to run the voice training tutorial:

  2. Click Start, type: speech recognition., then press on enter

  3. Click on take speech tutorial.

  4. Follow the instructions in the speech recognition tutorial.

Train your computer to recognize your speech

  1. Speech recognition uses a profile unique voice to recognize your voice and spoken commands. As you use speech recognition, your voice profile becomes more detailed, which should improve the ability of your computer to understand you.

  2. Click Start, type: speech recognition., then press on enter

  3. Click Train your computer to better understand you.

  4. Follow the instructions on the screen.


  • Speech recognition is available in English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese.

  • How to set speech recognition in English

    Hello world

    I live in Barcelona and have the Spanish version of Windows 7, Home Premium edition.
    For my work, I use most of the time English and I would like to use speech recognition in Win7.
    I made the tutorial - in Spanish - but you do not how to set all of the application into English.
    Does anyone know how to do?
    Thank you.



    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change just the language of speech recognition. Windows speech recognition is only available 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 for a supported language of Windows speech recognition, you can then use Windows speech recognition to this language if it is also the language of the operating system.

    Note: Multilingual User Interface Pack MUIs are available in Windows 7 ultimate through Windows Update as optional updates. They are not installed automatically.

    A Russian Language Pack is available. However, the language packs are only for display of menus, dialog boxes and other user interface elements.

    WSR, Windows speech recognition which includes the dictation commands and navigation of the user interface. Apparently, only the following languages are supported for WSR:

    English US

    UK English

  • French speech recognition on Windows ITO?

    Hi all

    I developed a Windows 10 as a CEP application. This application uses speech recognition to the french language. Now, I would like to use this app with my raspberries FT2 and Windows ITO. But in fact, the speech recognition on Windows ITO only works for the English language.

    Do you know if it is expected that the languages (such as french) are added on Windows ITO for speech recognition?

    Thanks for help.

  • Speech recognition in Windows 7 does not work with several sentences

    I use speech recognition with Windows 7 and Word 2010. In the past, it worked fine, but now it has developed several questions:

    1. When I say 'OK _', he responds with "this command is not available now.
    2. When I insert a period at the end of a sentence, it puts a space between the last word and the period.
    3. When I say "He went out", he responds with "this command is not available now.

    The only change I made is the upgrade to Office 2010, but I have Office 2010 on my laptop and it works fine there.

    Is there a way to fix the voice recognition program?

    I'm having the same problem.  Windows Speech recognition (WSR) IS NOT playing well with Office 2010.  A very disappointing setback because it appears to praise them to the improvement of the accessibility features THAT WSR will not dictate in Word 2010 without having to accept the text in the window on the other.  Very slow process is the result of the incompatibility and effectively stops to dictate.  :-(

    I have exactly the same problem, Word 2010 (32 bit on 64 bit systems) leaves me only the replacement window allows you to dictate text and many features learned during the training now work well in this mode.

    It really does not need speech recognition. However, there is no problem using the dictation in Internet Explore.

    To fix this (remove the dialog box) right-click on the translation of the speech tool, then go to options, then uncheck the "enable dictation Notepad '.

  • problem of speech recognition in Windows Live Mail on Windows 7

    I use speech recognition with Windows 7 software. When I am dictating an e-mail in Windows Live Mail, sometimes a small box appears and dictation appears here, and I have to keep saying 'OK' for the words appear in the e-mail message. But sometimes the disc text right into the email as if I type it. Why is this happening? Only, it seems to happen in an email, not anywhere, so far.


    When you use Windows Live Mail and the question you have posted is related to Windows Live, so it would be better suited in the Windows Live community. Please visit the link below to find a community that will provide the best support.

    When you say that it has stopped working, can you be more specific? For example:

    • Are you able to turn on the microphone?
    • Have you tried runnning utility all microphone of the Control Panel, speech recognition Options?
    • What mic do you use? Have you checked to see if it is connected and correctly connected?
    • If the microphone is connected properly, there as default recording device?
