Windows 7 and Vista uses SAPI5.3 which means the older spvoice speech synthesis are out (they still work for synthesis though). Under no circumstances will this program work in windows XP. Only Vista or x86 Windows7. The new DLLS used are Imports System.Speech.Recognition Imports System.Speech.Recognition.SrgsGrammar Imports System.IO Imports System.Speech.Synthesis
Some basic help to get the program running.
1.Make sure that your speech recognition language is set to US English. The program will not run on UK English or any other language at present.
It won’t be too difficult to change this however.
2.You may have to disable the UAC – User activated control to get the program to work for some PCs (especially in Windows 7).
3. You can download the source and run the .exe file in the bin/debug directory and this always works if you have trouble! Good luck and I would like to know how you get on with the program.
