I am developing a Speech Recognition application on Windows 7.
The thing is, I have a Windows 7 Home Premium Machine with en-US Language. It ships with an English Speech Recognizer Engine.
I would like to be able to switch between Spoken Languages on my application. After some research I've found that on Windows 7 Ultimate you can install 35 additional "language packs" via Windows Update, and I'm seriously thinking on buying the Windows Anytime Upgrade, so I pimp my Win7 Home Premium to Ultimate.
But, before I buy, my question is:
Installing any Language Pack from Windows Update will also install additional Speech Recognition Engines?
If not possible, how can I make my speech app to become automatically Spanish, French and Deutsch "fluent"?
