Where are windows 7 speech recognition files stored?

Hi,

I need to recover my windows 7 speech recognition files to avoid having to re-train it again.

Can someone inform where they are stored so I can copy them over to my new windows installation.

Thanks,

Zuxo

Great, thanks for that tool it will be most useful.8-))

Is there any way to get the files back from a backup as that tool works great on an existing installation but not on a backup?
