Microsoft .NET Speech SDK also includes documentation that provides a wide range of instructive and practical information. In addition to a Speech Controls reference, the documentation offers conceptual overviews, information about the set of tools contained in the SDK, and tutorials that demonstrate how to create specific types of applications. As an aid to help you locate the information that interests you most, the following section lists and describes the main areas of the documentation.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

when i start the GUI by running MSE?s exe-file the taskbar-icon shows,
but when i hover over it with the mouse, then it disappears.
and the GUI also disappeared when i clicked on "Update" or tried to change some other settings.
i have now un-installed, rebooted & re-installed MSE-beta several times,

I recently downloaded and installed this Anit-Spyware and found that I then experienced problems in activating my "Firewall". The software itself worked well and identified several items that Ad-Aware SE apparently missed.Has anyone else used this version of software and have they experienced the same problems, and if so is there an obvious fix.

Answer:Problems - Beta.1 version "Microsoft Anti-Spyware"

At the risk of sounding contrite, please note the use of the word "Beta" in the name of this software.Personally, I always avoid ANY software until the word "Beta" disappears from its title.

Answer:Dragon naturallyspeaking speech.dll version

You haven't said if this software has successfully run on Windows 10 previously, or if this is the first time you've tried running it on Windows 10, so I'll assume the latter.If it is an old version, it may not be compatible with Windows 10, in which case you will have to update it to the latest version.message edited by phil22

Hello there, I have an issue with Micorosft Speech Recognition 5.1. I'm running Windows XP Home SP2. Essentially, when I use a program that uses Speech Recognition 5.1 or open it's options in the Control Panel -> Speech -> Speech Recognition tab, it mutes my microphone (front mic and line volume). Manually resetting this lasts for only a few moments and then it mutes again. Using programs that don't use Microsoft Speech Recognition 5.1 (such as TeamSpeak and Skype) haven't thrown any issues like this for me. Does anyone know a work around or how to stop other programs from interfering with my microphone settings?

I have done the training, and everything else in the speech control panel, but I cannot open the actual speech recognition program, how do I do this ? Or do i not need to (by just saying a word anywhere and it "appearing"). I have added only two words to the punctuation area, do I need to do this ? Or can i just download a file with all the "default/more common" ways of saying each word ?

I'm starting to use Windows 7's speech recognition program which is proving to be much better than the alternatives, especially Dragon.

However, I can't get it to work with non-microsoft programs. It won't work with Adobe products (Photoshop, Illustrator, iDesign), Open Office, or the Chrome browser. It will work with Wordpad, Expression Web, Live Writer, etc.

Is there some setting I can change? Or is Speech Recognition a microsoft only tool?

Say I am writing:

I would say Fred said comma quote now this computer stuff bugs me period end quote. The speech program gets everything right except for putting a capital letter on the word Now. Is there any way to set a default for this issue? Maybe I'm doing it all wrong. Tough to write dialog with speech software.

Microsoft makes history: human-like speech recognition achieved

Microsoft has outdone itself. Just one month ago, the company's Speech & Dialog research and development team beat out IBM's record results, posting a 6.3 percent WER (word error rate) in the Switchboard speech recognition test. Those results were pretty close to human performance but still short. That previous best is no longer valid as that same team has made history in speech recognition.

In the same test, Microsoft's speech recognition system managed a 5.9% WER. When the team compared those results with human transcriptionists, they were identical, making the speech recognition software as accurate as human beings when it comes to writing/reciting words spoken to them.

Geoffrey Zweig, who manages the Speech & Dialog research group, was happy to finally make this breakthrough. He said the historic results were ?the culmination of over twenty years of effort". Harry Shum, executive vice president of the Microsoft Artificial Intelligence and Research group, couldn't believe the results came as quick as they did.

"Even five years ago, I wouldn?t have thought we could have achieved this. I just wouldn?t have thought it would be possible".

-Harry Shum​
Indeed the achievement is one for the record books. Though there's a moment for celebration, the team is not done yet. Much has been accomplished since DARPA started the work to make speech recognition ... Read more

it fails to initialise when i click -training in The Thin Blue "speech bar"

Here is what has worked for me.

I been using the beta version for a few months now and found that it worked better than the others on my Windows XP Media Center Edition. I run my program when I wnat my pc on. My PC won't automatically hybernate while it runs. When I want to shut my pc down, I pause my work and send my pc into hybernate mode.

I'm using the graphical interface, and I prefer the ball and stick view, it seems to be more pc friendly. I also have the draw rate at the slowest. I set my cpu to 50% with lowest priority. This way my pc fan does not have to work as hard to keep my pc cool.

I xp service pack 3 installed on a Dell XPS 200.

Trend Micro are proud to announce the release of HijackThis version 2.0.2. This is the first non-beta release of HijackThis since our first release back in March. We since have been working alongside many HijackThis support communities to ensure that our changes reflect their needs. New features and fixes are listed below.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with HijackThis, it is a free software utility that generates an in depth report of registry and system settings by scanning your Windows computer. The resulting log file can be examined by experienced users or web-forum helpers to determine what may have infected your PC. HijackThis makes no separation between safe and unsafe settings in its scan results. Expert users are provided the ability to selectively remove items from your PC, such as malicious or unwanted software. In addition to this scan and remove capability HijackThis comes with several tools useful in manually removing malware from a computer.

A common practice for novice users is to generate a HijackThis log file and submit it one of the many web-forums devoted to helping people fix their computers by using HijackThis. Experts at these forums provide information on which items are causing your problems and how to remove them safely from your computer.

New features include:
AnalyzeThis statistics
Windows Vista and IE 7.0 improved support
Improved whitelisting for non English o/s
Added capabilities to clean ActiveX Desktop Components

I am using a Vista based system. I downloaded the IE8 (beta) from the MS site. Everything seemed to work fine in the compatability mode, except for my games from Real Arcade. The support people at RA say that they are only compatable with IE7, and that I should reinstall it. Since I have large portfolio of games with them, I am frustrated at not being able to use them. I have deceided to switch back to IE7, but I cannot find how to do so. I have tried resetting the internet settings thru the control panel, but that didn't work. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to uninstall IE8 and reinstall IE7? Thanks.

Answer:How to undo IE Version 8 (beta)?

To uninstall IE8 beta 1 or 2 from Vista, go to Control Panel, Programs &
Features, then click on "View installed updates", you will find IE8 there &
you can now select 'Uninstall'.
After a restart, your Vista will have reverted to IE7.

Hey everyone,

On my PC I have a beta release version from earlier this year. I have just purchased a student version of windows 7.

What will be the easiest way to install it?

Reload my PC with Vista, then upgrade using the student version?

Thanks!

Answer:Beta Version upgrading

Did you download or do you have a disc? If you downloaded, then burn it to disk and do a clean install would be my recommendation. Make bootable iso from student d/l

Hope this helps.

Go with the regular one as less likely to have any issues, beta's can be prone to faults, although running betas is a hit and miss affair as some users will say they have no issues, while others have issues.
