  • Voice Recognition is completely broken

    1.) In the General Settings, go to Input Options : Voice Interface.
    2.) Click on Train Microphone.

    Bug: All you get is:

    "Voice Interface Error!
    There was an error launching the microphone training wizard. Please consult the program log for more details."

    (SD does actually minimize itself for about 1/4 second, whereas the instructions in the Settings window say that it will actually go out of full screen mode

    I was trying that because whenever I do the /\ gesture to try a voice command, I get the following error message:

    "Voice Recognition Failed!
    The voice recognition engine is not initialized."

    I went to the Speech control panel, and there is nothing there for speech recognition.

    This is with my new G4 hard drive that was configured by the SD team.

      Installing the Microsoft Speed SDK 5.1 fixes the problem.

      But who would know to do that? Why doesn't it come preinstalled when it is required for this core functionality?
