Multi Language Speech Recognition

You can choose from 26 languages of the Microsoft Windows SDK 11 speech platform in addition to the speech recognizer of your windows version. These 26 languages for speech recognition have been developped by Microsoft for telephone servers. They do not have to be trained and perform very well. Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 7 Enterprise users can install MUI language packs using Windows Update. These are additional personal speech recognizer engines. These have to be trained, just like the speech recognizer that is built into your system already. They take long to install and change the complete windows surface to the language chosen.

Here is a list of language packs that contain an additional personal speech recognition engine:

  • Chinese (Hong Kong S.A.R)
  • Chinese (PRC)
  • Chinese (Taiwan)
  • English (US)
  • English (UK)
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Japanese

You can change the speech recognition engine (non personal or personal) and the language under settings / speech. You can also choose the level of confidence (of the SR engine in it's recognition result) that you want to accept. Other sliders to fine tune your speech recognizer are available, too.
