I started using speech recognition in Windows 7 a few weeks ago. It was working great until yesterday when he stopped working for no apparent reason. I used the troubleshooter without success. Help, please. Thank you!

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

  • When you try to start the WSR (Windown Speech Recognition) the speech bar appear?
  • 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?

  • 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 '.

  • After the latest updates from Microsoft, my Internet Backgammon supplied with Windows 7 no longer works. It is a dead link and the game opens same. That's happened?

    I like to play trump stings on Internet and Internet Backgammon that's installed with Windows 7, Home Premium edition.  However, after the automatic updates installed yesterday, I noticed that the link to play the Internet Backgammon is no longer works.  It's just a dead link.  I can click on it, but nothing happens.  Not even an ounce of trying to open.  It's just 'died '.  I can still play trump stings on the Internet and I have no trouble to access the internet, so I wonder if this is just a small problem or do you have Microsoft remove Internet Backgammon as one of its windows games?  Note, this is Internet Backgammon that is installed on the computer, in the folder games - it is NOT the version of backgammon on MSN that you actually go to the internet and to play.  I am referring to the one in the Games folder, which is installed with Windows 7.  I play this game almost every day, so I hope that it will be restored.  I wish there was a way to contact Microsoft about this, but there isn't and they charge, then...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Windows Mail no longer works and I get a pop up window telling me that it has stopped working.

    My Windows mail no longer works... it opens and then tells me that it has stopped working... it is highlighted on the Inbox. I have Panda Security but the scan of mail turned off. All started having this problem. Running Vista Home
    Thank you Jacquie

    original title: Windows Mail has stopped working

    There are extreme measures you can take.  One is either movement store the content of the message to another directory and WinMail starts it will be a clean message store (or you can simply rename the directory from the old Windows Mail message store and then create a new directory named Windows Mail which will begin to empty).  The other is to back up the registry key to Winmail (see www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#wm) and then remove it and then start WinMail and who must rebuild the registry key.  The first allows to compensate for a corrupt message store (you can use the file |) Import | Messages into the plu message store you renamed) and the second allows to compensate for a corrupted under the WinMail key registry hive.  I suspect the first manoeuvre will fix the problem, but I don't know.

    But those who are basically last stations.  I would like to save things before you do anything that anyone else.

  • Computer with pre installed windows 7 no longer work after Windows installation 10


    A few months ago, my son ordered a computer with Windows 7 pre-installed. He installed Windows 10 such as recommended with the message 'free upgrade'. Unfortunately, now the computer does not work at all and the computer doesn't seem to have a possibility of recovery (at least we cannot find it).

    In addition, the computer manufacturer does not meet one of e-mails and calls from some time. What can we do to recover his computer with Windows 7 or Windows 10 (I don't like which version of Windows)? Windows setup does not work 10 from scratch, the product key has not been accepted, probably because there is only a product key for a pre installed windows 7.

    Help, please!

    Kind regards
