It is my understanding that you need the Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine v5.0 to use the speech recognition features in Win XP, I can't find where to download it. Once downloaded will it incorporate itself with applications like notepad and Office ! ( I know you can do it through Office as well but I am looking for the Non Office option for now )

How to add speech recognition as a text service
Generally, speech recognition is added automatically as a text service when it is installed. Follow these steps only if you removed speech recognition as a text service and want to re-add it.

To add speech recognition as a text service, follow these steps:
1.      Click Start, click Control Panel, click Date, Time, Language, and Regional and Language Options, and then click Regional and Language Options.
2.      Click the Languages tab, and then click Details under Text services and input languages.
3.      Under Installed services, click Add.
4.      In the Input language list, click a language.
5.      Select the Speech check box, and then click an option in the list.

I have a similar problem:

The Speech check box is not available in Start/Run/Control Panel/Regional and Language Options/Languages tab/Details button.

It does show Settings (English - US) as the Default input language, and Installed Services shows English - US/Keyboard/US.  I tried adding a new language, but it would not come up with a checkbox for Speech anywhere.  

Am I missing a step?

Oh - I'm trying to get a microphone working again - which hasn't since the hard drive was reformatted and Windows XP & all apps were reinstalled.  I'm trying to use it (once again) for voice calls.
