vb6 RichTextBox not fully working with SAPI (Windows speech recognition)

Posted on 2011-10-13

Hi When using SAPI (Windows speech recognition) with a vb6 rich text box I notice that the dictation pad is shown. My understanding is that this means "select and say" commands e.g. "Select sentence" will not work. I have been informed that controls must be registered with the speech engine (perhaps a registry entry?) in order to allow SAPI to work with the control.

How do I go about registering a control to work within SAPI (without using the dictation pad)?

Many Thanks,

    hollecar.. I want to register the controls with SAPI so that I can get speech recognition working. I'm not trying to register COM controls in general.

    Have you reviewed any of the msdn articles on SAPI ?
