“Speech recognition could not start because the language configuration is not supported.”
Here’s a quick fix for anyone who wants to use speech recognition in either vista, or windows 7, but gets an error saying that the language configuration is not supported. The fix for this error is really simple, all you have to do is go into the control panel select regional settings then go to, location and change your location. It doesn’t matter what you change your location to just change it to something other than what it is currently set to. Now reboot your computer. The next time your computer boots up windows speech recognition software should start. No go ahead and go back into the control panel regional and location settings and change the location back your current location. Now you can go ahead and restart your computer once again, and a speech recognition software should still work.
I want to give a special shout-out to expo703 from sevenforums for discovering this solution, thanks!
