Hi,

I'm sure those of you who have experimented with the Speech Recognition in WinXP are familiar with the amount of time it takes to train a profile.  As I use more than one PC, is there anyway I can copy the profile from one machine to the other?  

Cheers,

North

I know it is nasty to train the profile ...

But its easy to transfer !!! .. yeah ..

If u r using viavoice ..

PC1 = Trained PC
PC2 = Untrained PC

Step 1:

Install Via Voice on PC2
Start the training .. 1-2 minutes ..

Step 2:

Go to PC1

Copy the following folder:
C: Drive > Program Files > Via Voice Folder

Step 3:

Go to PC2

Shut down ViaVoice
Copy this folder
Delete the folder "Via Voice" here
and Paste the one you obtained from PC1


Start your PC2 Via Voice .. U R Done ...

Love

Hi Nirman,

unfortunately I am just using Windows own speech recognition engine as I am a programmer writing my first speech enabled software and the SAPI provided by Microsoft uses their own engine / profiles.  

Thanks very much anyway,

That's more than likely but I would not want to copy D&S from one machine to another.  I also suspect there will be many registry entries that would be required.  Also one machine (my work machine) is on a domain and my home machine is stand alone, so my login user's SIDs would not match and I wouldn't be using the same windows profile anyway...  cheers anyhoo.

I'll check MS.com, there may be a transfer wizard I can use.

Thanks for the suggestions,

North
