Speech Recognition is built-in to Windows 8. Unfortunately, it refuses to run when the main operating system interface language is not one of the supported languages. My system is set to Norwegian. For many reasons, I cannot easily switch it to English without breaking other stuff. Switching back and forth requires a reboot.
I want to use Speech Recognition for dictation in English. How can I do that?
The only work around I have found is using a separate user account set to English. But working this way is very cumbersome. Can I somehow set the language that one program sees? Like how you can cheat by setting an environmental variable before launching a program on Linux.
This is for a Windows 8.1 RT system. I have installed the English US language pack.
