Windows 7 Speech Recognition!

21 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Ok. I have installed Windows 7 twice and both times, the speech recognition broke when starting it up after the tutorials and microphone setup. It gives the error... [Window Title] Speech Recognition Error [Main Instruction] Speech Recognition could not start because the language configuration is not supported. [Content] The recognizer language must match the language of the user interface. Please change the recognizer language in the Speech Recognition control panel under Advanced Options. I just copied everything the error box said. If anyone has figured out a way to fix this problem, your help would be appreciated. I've been really wanting to try out Speech Recognition in Windows 7 and can't because of this.

No dude, the thing comes up at the top and then closes with that error. I don't get to issue any commands.

You think maybe you have a bad copy of win 7? or maybe it doesnt like some piece of hardware in the machine? or a driver, try updaing chipset and sound drivers

I've updated everything to the latest I could find. It's happened on both installations of Windows 7. It's not that big of a deal, I just really wanted to try it out. Hopefully RC1 will fix this.

Well it should work as it does on mine - there must be another reason for it not working But to save you the hassle its about as acurate as it was on Vista - works if you speak very precisely and slowly

I've used it in Vista quite a bit and we impressed with it. I haven't got to try it on here. It was broke in 6801 and 7000.

Must be something your end - you should send feedback to MS about it, maybe they have a fix for you

Have you looked through the regional language options and double checked that everything is set to US ?

Yes. I checked all of that. Everything that could be set to English - US has been set to that.

I'm on Windows 7 RTM now and SR is still broken with the same error as in the original post. How disappointing.

Did you do a clean install or an upgrade?

Always do clean. Hate upgrades. It's been doing this since I started using Windows 7 at build 6801.

I had a similar problem with Speech Recognition in Windows 7. Mine however dealt with the System Locale. I changed it to Japanese so I could install a game, and then flipped it back to english, but when I tried Speech Recognition, it failed horribly.

Was solved when I installed Win 7 on a freshly formatted hard drive...

Um... System File Check? Doubt it, but can't hurt to cover all your bases...

Yeah. I did that and SR was one of the first things I ran when I installed Windows 7 RTM. I got to go through the mic setup and then when it was time to start-up SR, it gave the error and crashed.

Well the project is simple , actually it works in the following way: If your system lang is not being set on the lang wich the speech recognizion supports , then actually the whole speech recognise is useless. Try out to set your pc's lang to English U.K. and then set the Speech recog to English U.K aswell.

It should be work after this settings :)

I actually have it working. I think it was something screwy with my computer. I have it setup on a brand new computer working great. Thanks for the help though, everyone.

I have win7 x64

Hello,

QUICK ANSWER

So i look for this problem and saw that you can fix this issue via regedit.

go to computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

right click the right pane and a "new string value" value name can be default, value data should be set to "ctfmon"="CTFMON.EXE"

Entire msg

I had the same problem. Strangely i had some other symptoms. I am using Turkish Q keyboard as primary and english U.S. as secondary. As my speech recognition broke down, i saw that my office word and outlook mulfunctioned in terms of keyboard language. I was able to use Turkish Q keyboard on any application but when i open up outlook or word, language changes to english.

It used to happen on xp to.. so i enabled language bar to set it back to TR when i am using these applications. But language bar never displayed itself on taskbar or desktop. So i look for this problem and saw that you can fix this issue via regedit.

go to computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

right click the right pane and a "new string value" value name can be default, value data should be set to "ctfmon"="CTFMON.EXE"

After that i rebooted my machine and language bar came to the taskbar. I went under the applications and change language back to TR. And there was a suprise for me. Long gone speech recognition was back at the top center of the screen. (i tried everything else that people suggested nothing worked)

I am not sure but maybe language difference between applications caused my problem. Or maybe ctfmon caused it. Try this one.

i hope this is the case for you and you can fix it too..
