Speech Recognition


I recently came upon a project where a program can take in voice commands and perform tasks like opening a program or a file in Windows without any mouse or keyboard input. At first, I thought that was some fancy coding stuff going on that was out of my league. Well guess what, on a closer investigation its not. In fact, programming voice recognition into a software is very simple and I am going to demonstrate how in this article.

Microsoft have been developing voice recognition for a few years now and they have a website specialize in that (http://www.microsoft.com/speech). In order to start programming voice command recognition, you must have Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine installed. To download a copy, visit this download page to get it. (You need to install Microsoft Agent and language support and Speech recognition engines from this page).
