Speech Recognition for Portuguese (Brazil)

    General discussion

  • Hi,


    I need to make an application to recognize pt-BR, i've tryed to use System.Speech but this namespace don't have support for pt-BR, after that i've found Microsoft.Speech that have support for pt-BR, what I want to know is if have some way of doing the recognition without having to create the entire dictionary in a .GRXML file?


    I'm making this question because the System.Speech has the class DictationGrammar that have already the whole words recognition, but in English (en-US).


    Thank you for your attention.

  • Hi Raphael,

    currently Microsoft only provides the following speech recognition engines in Win7:  English (U.S. and British), Spanish, German, French, Japanese and Chinese (traditional and simplified). To install one of these languages you just need to install the correspondent language pack for the choosen language.

    For server side there´re a lot of other speech engines for other languages available, including pt-br. If you to develop server side app in Brazilian-Portuguese you need to have a Windows Server + Speech Server installed.
