Activating Speech Recognition
Im having problems activating Speech within Microsoft Word 2002. I activated speech in the tools menu, but when I attempt to train it, I get the message that it cannot complete the operation because another speech engine is in use (Microsoft ASR English Version 5 Engine). I currently have four speech engines installed: Microsoft ASR English Version 5 Engine; Lernout & Hauspie TruVoice American English TTS Engine; Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine 4.0, and Microsoft Text-To-Speech Engine 4.0.
Also, from Speech Tools/Options, when I go to Speech Input Settings/Language Bar/Add/Add Input Language, to activate Speech, its grayed out. I have EN United States, Keyboard, U.S., and Speech Recognition added in Installed Services. When I go to Speech in Control Panel, I get the error message: Could not initialize volume meter. Please select a different audio device. And for the Recognition Profiles, its empty and wont allow me to select anything including the default. (I DID inadvertently delete the default profile!!)
I also have fully installed Microsoft Agent 2.0 technology. For audio input I have a Labtec webcam with microphone in addition to a headphone with microphone.
My system profile is as follows:
Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (build 2600)
AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53 gigahertz
Radeon 9600 Pro
