Windows Speech Recognition stops responding or crashes when you use it to correct text
Consider the following scenario:
- You have a Windows Vista or Windows Vista Service Pack 1-based computer that may have some third-party language models installed for the Speech Recognition feature.
Note: Language models are components that determine what users can say to Windows Vista Speech Recognition.
- On this computer, you use Windows Speech Recognition to correct text. This is usually done by using the Correct that command. It may also be done programmatically by third-party applications.
In this scenario, Speech Recognition may stop responding or crash.
Note: In Windows Vista, you can add third-party language models to Speech Recognition. This issue is more likely to occur after third-party language models have been installed. However, in rare cases, this issue may also occur when third-party language models are not installed.
