    SpeechRecognition (Access XP)

    I installed the speech recognition feature because I wanted to do some testing to see if it would accomplish anything I would be able to make use of in any of my Office applications. The problem is every time the computer is rebooted, the speech feature is turned on in Access and programs that I have running automatically at night are encountering problems. Once I manually turn off this feature in Access (by selecting Tools on the menubar and clicking Speech) everything runs smoothly. When I go away for a few days, if something happens and the computer is restarted I need this feature to stay off and not reactivate when someone turns the computer back on. Can anyone shed some light on what I need to do or should I just uninstall this feature?

    I would recommend an uninstall - if you don't others have reported problems from time to time. The uninstall isn't completely straightforward either. Do a search on "speech" in this forum and in the General Office forum, and you should find several posts on this topic.

    Thanks for your response. I searched the General Office forum as you suggested and clicked on a link you had recommended on the Microsoft knowledge base. It was no longer available, but while I was there, I searched on "remove speech" and was directed to use the Regional and Language Options under the control panel, select the Language tab, and click on the details button. Speech was listed as an option I could remove. After doing that, I rebooted and speech is no longer displayed in my tools menu in Access.
