Sample Source Code for Speech Developers


If you are a software developer wanting to incorporate speech recognition and voice output into your application, we have sample source code that can get you started.  We have samples for the native Speech API (SAPI) and the managed System.Speech namespace (Recognition and Synthesis).

The samples are part of the Windows SDK and the most recent versions were included in the Windows SDK for Windows Server 2008 and Vista SP1.

The Windows SDK completely replaces the older SAPI 5.1 SDK and supports development on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.

To get the samples, customers can download this SDK as a DVD image (1,330MB ISO file), or go through a guided setup process where only the components they need are downloaded.  Speech is part of the base install.

    I downloaded the Windows SDK DVD and installed it in on my XP system, but when I open Visual Studio 2002 and go to add a reference, I don’t see version 5.3 of the speech API listed.

    Do I need Vista to use version 5.3 of the API?  A new version of Visual Studio perhaps?  Or is my system mis configured?

    Thanks,

    Hi

    I am using SAPI 5.1 in my asp.net application. It works fine in my system(windows XP), when i moved to my code in windows 2003 server and test, i am getting "Can not set voice. The voice is not installed… ). But i installed Speech API in the server too.. But i found the samples are working fine in server.

    Hello all,

    A little about myself, I took some college programming classes a while back: C++. I have kept it as a hobby over the years.

    In a nutshell, my goal now is to be able to write a very simple/very basic interactive program  like jeopardy game. Where the program accepts speech and compares it to the pre-existing answers and produces a voice response output: correct, incorrect.

    I've heard that speech recognition has come a long way,Any help/guidance would be so Greatly Appreciated. Maybe a book, resources, etc. you could recommend.

    My email address is :  robscafe@yahoo.com

    Thanks
