Installing It's Your Plane on XP


XP Operating System

SAPI 5.1 Required for XP Operating Systems:
If you do not already have the FREE Microsoft SAPI 5.1 Speech Recognition and Text-To-Speech application on your PC, and you are running on an XP Operating platform, then you will need to download and install it, by clicking here:

Please save this file in an easy-to-find folder (e.g., C:\SAPI) then UNZIP the file. Using your file Explorer (Right-click the Desktop [Start] Button > Left-click on [Explore]) locate the folder where you unzipped the files. Then, install the SDK by running the SETUP file.

After Installing the Microsoft Speech Engine SDK
It is easy to find out whether or not you have the Microsoft Speech Engine properly installed on your PC. Simply open up your computer's control panel by left-clicking on the desktop Start button and selecting Control Panel from the menu. On the Control Panel, select Sound, Speech and Audio Devices.

NOTE: If you do not see this icon, then you do not have the Speech Recognition engine properly installed.

Speech Icon

Double-click the Speech icon from your control panel and open up the Speech Properties dialog box.

NOTE: If you do not have a Speech Recognition tab in the Speech Properties window as in the image below, then you do not have the Speech Recognition engine installed properly.

Speech Panel

In the Language section on the Speech Recognition tab of the Speech Properties dialog box, you will see a drop-down box. Please ensure that you have it set to:

Microsoft English Recognizer v5.1

Unless you are going to have more than one person using the speech application, leave the Default Speech Profile selected.

Set up the Audio Input, then use the Configure Microphone option to the optimum levels.

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: USE A HIGH-QUALITY MICROPHONE HEADSET.

A high-quality microphone headset can dramatically improve the accuracy of speech recognition by your computer.

VOICE TRAINING - TRAINING - TRAINING!!!

It is of PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE that you do MULTIPLE training sessions. Click the "Train Profile" button and select a session for training (you can do more training at any time). The more training sessions you perform, the better the system will operate!
