.NET Framework (since version 3.0) is speech recognition, which is included by default in Microsoft Windows Vista. The Vista operating system includes a speech recognition engine based on Windows Desktop Speech technology which enables users to dictate vocal commands that can be received by applications as well as the operating system itself. To utilize Windows Vista's built-in speech recognition engine, both as a normal user and as a developer, you will need to configure the system by following the steps shown here, where you will also find also a list of supported languages.
An important consideration that we have to take into account is that most of the latest versions of Microsoft applications, particularly the Microsoft Office System 2007, support speech recognition by default. For example, you could simply launch Vista's speech engine and then open Microsoft Word 2007 to automatically enable dictation into your documents or to control UI elements in Word with vocal commands. But this is the simplest scenario; we can also programmatically control the speech engine if needed. In this article we're going to focus on how this can be done by creating a custom task pane for Microsoft Word 2007 with Visual Studio 2008. This article will help you understand the basics of the System.Speech.Recognition namespace so that you will be able to use it in your .NET applications.
