Problem with speech recognition in Windows 7 and MS Word 2010 - strange window opens

I have been using speech recognition in Windows 7 to dictate in Word 2010.  Yesterday it worked fine: I did a number of training records, added a few new words in the speech dictionary and dictated a part of a document.  No major problems.

Today, however, when I begin to dictate, rather than insert the words directly in my Word document, a secondary window will appear next to the insertion point and text appears here, with small buttons that say "insert" and "Cancel".  It's rather annoying - get the text dictated in the document, I must stop dictating and say "insert."  Is it possible to prevent that from happening?  As far as I know, I don't have any changes to the settings or program options to cause this.  Help!

Thanks for the answer, but now I can't seem to reproduce the problem.  I don't know why what started, but it doesn't seem to be the case more.  Thank you.

  • 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.

  • Getting started with speech recognition problems

    I tried to use speech recognition on windows 7 but it does not recognize the new device (headset) and tells me that the language of the English of the United States, recognition does not match the language of the user interface.  Could be a missing driver and how do I get it installed.  I never had problems with windows to recognize a new device until I tried to use speech recognition.  I don't understand why I'm having a problem with the language; It will allow speech recognition to open so that I can use it.  Both are these problems related to a missing driver or could there be another reason?

  • I now have a problem with the update for Windows Live Essentials 2011

    I don't understand how it happened, but maybe someone could enlighten me?

    First of all, I was informed of an update for Microsoft Security Essentials. So of course, I did the update because I didn't want to be protected.

    I don't know if this is related somehow. I think that my update understood also as a Windows Live Essentials package. When I checked my e-mail and instant messaging, I noticed that the format has changed, and now, I think it's the new WLM 2011.

    It may seem very nice and put up-to-date, but it caused a series of serious problems for me. Let me explain:

    First of all, I must clarify that I am disabled and use the speech recognition, Windows speech recognition Dragon NaturallySpeaking both, because I can't use my hands.

    In the original WLM before the update, if I were using Dragon NaturallySpeaking, I was able to dictate with great ease and had no problem. If I wanted to then send the email I would say just 'send' and e-mail would go. With WLM 2011, if I say that now, it does not work.

    It's just a problem that I have. The next problem is much larger. In some cases, Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition will not work and I can't dictate anything. I then have to close WLM completely and then open it again. Then only, it'll work. This happens many times and it's very frustrating, as you can imagine for someone like me.

    Forgive me for saying, it may seem very well with all the new bells and whistles there, but it makes my life a misery at the moment. In my view, there are a lot of bugs that need to be sorted out first with her.

    My question is, can I go back to the original WLM somehow until the update meets my needs? Can I go back to the status quo when WLM 2010 worked well with speech recognition for me?

    If so, can someone tell me how to do what you please?

    If not, then how am I supposed to use these features now?

    Thank you

  • Speech recognition in Windows 7: what MS Office Word, not wordpad or Notepad?

    When I trained with speech recognition, it seems pretty well put together.

    The controls are a bit different from Dragon NaturallySpeaking, but much more user friendly.

    The problem is that it works well with notepad and wordpad, but don't integrate well with MS Office Word. In Word, you must dictate in a staging area, and then insert the unformated words in Word.
    What a shame, it's a good program otherwise.

    All information, whether it is it? Is the inclussion of the Word as a usable on the horizen program? With Office 2010?

  • 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.

    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.

  • Problems with USB devices in Windows XP Mode on Windows 7 Pro

    I have a Palm Zire 21 that I use with ACT! Contact Manager to keep track of my appointments.  I was able to sync the Palm with my ACT database until this week. The device appears on the list of USB devices, but does not connect to Windows XP mode.

    I used this device in XP Mode since August without any problem.  Last week, I started having problems with the integration of XP features and had to uninstall and reinstall the integration features a few times.  I think I have a corrupted somewhere driver.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    No need to comment unless you have more insight.

    I solved the problem myself.  In XP mode, I went to the Device Manager and scroll down to USB controllers.  A virtualization USB bus drivers showed a problem.   I uninstalled this device and then managed to reinstall my Palm correctly after connecting it to the USB port, and then going back to the menu at the top of the XP USB mode screen and hit connect when I saw my camera.  The device connected in XP automatically and I was off to the races.
