I went through the process of training Windows 7 Speech Recognition and got my friends to do the same (under separate accounts I created for them) so that they can use it for gaming when they come over.
I'm now considering running some games under XP as they might perform better, but I'd rather not have to re-do the Speech training again (or get my friends to do so). I've installed the Speech SDK and got it working in XP.
I thought I might be able to just copy the files from the two folders (MSASR and TrainingAudio) from (Windows7):\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Speech\Files\ to C:\Documents and Settings\Main\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Speech\Files\ but as far as I can tell they're not being used (at least the recognition is terrible compared to how it was on Windows 7). I've tried with Mic Boost on and off (Windows 7 has a variable boost but I only set it to 10db, which is probably the same as what XP's Mic Boost does).
So I'm wondering if there's some trickery/renaming needed to make XP accept the files from Windows 7? Is there some sort of registry flag that makes XP think the training hasn't been done and therefore it will ignore the existing files, or does it use a slightly different naming scheme, so that the Windows 7 files won't be used as they are?
I'd also like to try and swap out the training files, depending on which friend is playing, rather than having to close the game and logout and login as a different user. So I've got the files for each friend backed up in a separate folder and could easily make a batch file to delete the files in MSASR and TrainingAudio (under a generic Users\Gaming\ account) and copy over the files from whichever backup folder I want to use, but will this work or does Windows 7 (or XP) name the files differently for each user, such that this idea won't work as the files won't be recognised?
