I saw on a TV Show called The Screensavers and they were talking about how to turn on the XP voice recognition. But they forgot to mention how to get it installed first.

What I do remember is that they gave the following instructions.

Control panel

sounds, speech ect.

speech

In the speech properties there should have been a tab for speech recognition the only one I see is TEXT TO SPEECH.


How did they get speech recognition installed on their system Im positive it was an XP home system because they did not say anything about having to buy and install or about having XP PRO.

Any adeas on what they were talking about or did I miss something? Thanx

I do know that XP will talk but I am not sure what your looking for. If you mean that you want to say into a mic commands for XP, then that might mean additonal software. At any rate, go to their web site and look through their show notes. Everything they say on air is there. BTW, I made that show live via my web cam last spring. It's a pretty neat show.

XP is set up to use speech recognition, but does not automatically contain an engine. Other programs, Office XP for example, do. These programs automatically install an engine, and the tab you mention will become available. Or you can find and download a seperate utility.
