Windows 7 Support for Bing.Speech API RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Speech Recognition API from the NuGet package Microsoft.Bing.Speech. When trying to establish a connection to the server by calling the SpeechClient.RecognizeAsync method on a Windows 7 system a System.Net.WebSockets.WebSocketException "The server returned status code '200' when status code '101' was expected" is thrown.

    I read in the documentation of the System.Net.WebSockets namespace that "Some of the classes in the System.Net.WebSockets namespace are supported on Windows 7, Windows Vista SP2, and Windows Server 2008."

    Does that mean that the Bing Speech API will not be available on systems with Windows 7 or below?

    Are there any workarounds?
