How can I tame Microsoft Speech Recognition?
« on: March 09, 2011, 09:22:32 PM »
I am using Microsoft Speech Recognition in a specific application, but for whatever reason, weird things have occurred.  I am sure it is because MSR is reading my speech as some kind of command.

Does anyone know how to "turn off" the keyboard command part of MSR?

Thanks,
~ CT

Thank you very much, Curt!  I have taken a look at the card, but what I need isn't addressed.  What I am after is the ability to have the speech recognition engine only respond to the window/app that has the focus; otherwise, you end up with some really strange happenings.  I'll forward my inquiry to the "listen" email.  Take care!

Just wanted to say I hope you have better luck with it than I did - Lacking a good mic at the time - I ended up scrapping the idea after 20 minutes of (um...) "enthusiasticly" swearing at it because it wouldn't respond at all, unless I yelled directly into the mic.
