  • Question

  • Why is System.Speech, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg145021(v=vs.110).aspx, not available for Windows store apps?  Bing.Speech, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn434583.aspx, I know is but this constrains the possibilities.

  • We cannot give details beyond that it didn't get implemented. There were sessions at Build 2011 which you can watch at http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/BUILD/BUILD2011 which explain the thinking behind what was included.

  • Is Build 2011 still relevant?  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/using-speech-recognition  RT can do it 8.1 can do it.

  • While details may have changed since Build 2011 the panels discussing the design and philosophy of Windows 8 are still relevant to your "why?" question. I believe A .NET developer's view of Windows 8 app development talks about this some.

    Windows Speech Recognition is available to users and can control apps, but there is no API for apps to directly do speech reco on the system.

  • Bing.Speech has hard limits on request per month.  System.Speech is available if you use a wpf why would this not be available for win store app?
