Although I knew about the speech recognition feature in Vista Business I never wanted to try it until I accidentally came across a demo video of speech recognition in Vista. It seems it could save a lot of time, especially for those who work on a lot of papers and reports.\n\n\n\nI tried to launch the speech recognition feature but an error window popped up saying the wizard could not be launched. It asked me to check if my audio hardware is working fine and if it is configured properly. I checked all my settings for audio but everything seems normal. The drivers for the microphone are installed and I can even record through the inbuilt microphone. What could I be missing? \n\n\n\nThanks,\n\nKeith.\n\n\n\n\n\nNote: There was a similar post on this forum where a user experiencing the same problem created another admin account and got rid of the problem. I do not want to create another account just for voice recogntion to work and also, it doesn't solve the actual problem.
