How to Implement Speech-to-text in Windows Store 8.1 application in offline mode?

    Question

  • Hi,

    We are developing a windows 8.1 WinRT store applications, In that we have a textbox where we want to implement the Speech to text functionality, user will speak and the appropriate text would be display in text box. 

    We found Cortana and Bing Speech Recognition Control samples but they need internet connection. We want an offline solution to work with Speech to text.

    There is a huge HUGE difference between text-to-speech and speech-to-text. Please don't make me explain what the difference is.

  • It is just 2 features of the same OS component which does not support windows store apps. Microsoft did not expose SAPI to WinRT. You can vote at https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/253374-missing-platform-apis to petition to bring it to the store side. 

    If you are interested in some third party component you can ask if the developer wants to release a windows store version.

  • Text to speech is supported on Windows 8.1 with the Windows.Media.SpeechSynthesis namespace. There is no in-box speech recognition for Windows Store apps (outside of the already mentioned Bing Speech Recognition Control )
