Windows Speech Recognition Macros is now available!!


I’m very pleased to announce that first Technical Preview of Windows Speech Recognition Macros is now available for immediate download on downloads.microsoft.com.


The Windows Speech Recognition Macros tool (aka WSRMacros) extends the usefulness of the speech recognition capabilities already included in Windows Vista. Users can now create powerful macros that are triggered by spoken commands. These macros can perform a single task, or a series of tasks. Macros can be as simple as inserting your mailing address to as complex as providing a completely different speech interaction utilizing a number of built in capabilities or utilizing custom JScript/VBScript actions.

You can read more about WSRMacros in the the release notes here.

Stay tuned to the following blogs for more information on how you can best utilize the full power of Windows Speech Recognition Macros:


Additionally, we’d love to hear from you about what you like and what you don’t like about WSRMacros. Please send us email at listen@microsoft.com and let us know what you think. We won’t be able to answer all the emails that we receive, but we’ll do our best to use your questions and comments to make WSRMacros better over the coming months.


NOTE: While we have tried to make it easy to use, this release of WSRMacros is a technical preview of technology we are planning to release in the future. Not all of the features we have planned are included, and some features are incomplete. Users are cautioned to treat this release as “pre-beta.”

    Do these work for Windows 7? All the official ones I could find say they're for Vista, but they also predate 7 and I'm not sure they would work.
