Windows speech recognition does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I have a problem in trying to run Windows speech recognition. When I go to Control panel -> Speech recognition, I'm unable to turn it on because of this information which displays everytime:
    Windows Speech Recognition is not available for the current display language.
    I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium (Slovak version).
    How can I get it working? Please...
    Thank you.

  • Hi,
    I found that in Windows 7 Home Premium you're not able to switch between languages. Only one language is allowed i think...

  • Hello,

    Which language version of Windows 7 you are using? Windows Speech Recognition is available in English (U.S.), English (U.K.), German (Germany), French (France), Spanish (Spain), Japanese, Chinese (Traditional), and Chinese (Simplified).

    Try the following method:

    1. Open control panel->Change Display language
    2. Click Install/uninstall language, remove all installed languages.

  • Hi,
    I'm using Slovak version, but why should I remove all installed languages? Is there some other way?

  • Hello,

    Unfortunately, Windows speech recognition currently does not support Slovak language. It only works in the following language versions:

    English (U.S.), English (U.K.), German (Germany), French (France), Spanish (Spain), Japanese, Chinese (Traditional), and Chinese (Simplified).

  • But is the uninstallation of all languages and having only one of those languages you wrote the only solution? Can I have both Slovak and English languages together and just switch between them?

  • Hello,

    Yes, you can keep Slovak and English languages. Try to switch the Display Language to English and see if Windows speech recognition works.
