Text Services and Input Languages

I recently installed a new Speech Recognition SAPI device from Office 2003 for recognizing traditional Chinese spoken language. The problem is that office installed it as an entire service, which includes a Keyboard IME and Speech Recognition service. The IME is ChangJie Chinese input, however, I already have a Keyboard Layout / IME for Chinese installed, which uses pinyin.

For reasons that are difficult to explain, i need to to able to either remove the IME from the list of services, or to hide it so that using the Windows hotkey to cycle between the list of available IME's on the system does not show the Changjie IME.

Under Text Services and Input Languages, I have the following:
Chinese (PRC)
    Keyboard
        Zhongwen ( Sougou Input ) <-- This is the one I primarily use.
    Speech Recognition <-- this is for Simplified Chinese, and not useful for me.

Chinese (Taiwan)
    Keyboard
        Chinese (Traditional) - New ChangJie <--- I want to remove this one.
    Speech Recognition <--- I use this speech recognition API

English (United States)
    Keyboard
        US
    Speech Recognition


As far as I can tell, you cannot modify a installed service once it has been added to the list of installed services. Attempting to add a new service does not give me the choice to add a Speech Recognition

Ideally, I would be able to add a new service, mixing the Sougou Pinyin IME with the traditional Chinese speech recognizer, but it doesn't give me that option under the Add menu.

I understand your question fully, but as you already know, it was installed as a package.  Thats the only way the language packs come.  You cannot remove just the keyboard...

No points should be allocated, since the question was not answered. In the end, I ended up jury rigging a solution, you can install the Traditional Chinese Office 2003 IME, then install Sogou which is a popular pinyin Chinese IME. From there, you can go into the options of the Sogou program, check the Input Management, and delete the traditional Chinese Changjie Keyboard Input method, which will keep the voice recognition aspect of it.

Your original question wasn't clear. You didn't ask for a rigged solution. You asked if it could have been done natively.

Read my post again:
"For reasons that are difficult to explain, i need to to able to either remove the IME from the list of services, or to hide it so that using the Windows hotkey to cycle between the list of available IME's on the system does not show the Changjie IME."

Where exactly in my post does it say, "natively"? While you may have inferred that, I asked for a solution; OBVIOUSLY, native would have been ideal, but anything that helped solve the problem would have been helpful.

The only comment that was offered was not a solution. I figured out the solution to my own problem, the steps of which are included in this post.
