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.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
