I'm making a program that teaches English (on Windows 10) and it has the user reading some terms, I made it with the Windows 7 engine:

using System.Speech.Recognition;

which is extremely buggy. It also opens a gadget in Windows. Should I instead make it with:


If so, how?

What I have tried:

// Create an in-process speech recognizer for the en-US locale.  
        SpeechRecognitionEngine recognizer = new SpeechRecognitionEngine(new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US"));

                // Create and load a dictation grammar.  
                recognizer.LoadGrammar(new DictationGrammar());

                // Add a handler for the speech recognized event.  
                recognizer.SpeechRecognized += new EventHandler<SpeechRecognizedEventArgs>(recognizer_SpeechRecognized);

                // Configure input to the speech recognizer.  

                // Start asynchronous, continuous speech recognition.  
            catch(Exception ex)

        void recognizer_SpeechRecognized(object sender, SpeechRecognizedEventArgs e)
            //Console.WriteLine("Recognized text: " + e.Result.Text);
            if (e.Result.Text == term)
                BackColor = Color.Green;

What happens ... or does not happen ... when you run your code ?

A gadget of the old Windows speech recognition opens and it's extremely buggy and doesn't understand almost anything, while Cortana for example understand everything (same mic), I want an other way (newer) of speech recognition.

but, your code does not cause an error ? Try putting a break-point at the start of your code, then single-step (F11), observing the state of variables.

There's no error, the code is right, but the speech recognition of the old engine is bad.

That indicates some kind of install error: you've got to identify the exact dependency that is not implemwnted, and remove the older whatever that is invoked now. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
