Both 64 bit and 32 bit versions of this product are installed on the same computer

Issue: If both the 64-bit and 32-bit version of this product are installed on the same computer, the add references dialog in Visual Studio will only point to the Microsoft.Speech Assembly from the last version installed. If the last version installed is then uninstalled, the Add References dialog will no longer point to the correct file location of the Microsoft.Speech Assembly.

Resolution: If both versions of the SDK are required, then ensure you are selecting the correct assembly file reference in the Add References dialog or use the Browse feature to select the correct reference directly. If you then uninstall the last installed version of the SDK, you should use the Repair feature of the remaining installed SDK to allow the Add References dialog to continue to function.

After runtime installation, no speech recognition or text-to-speech languages are available

Issue: The speech recognition (SR) and text-to-speech (TTS) languages are not installed by default.

Resolution: To install speech recognition or text-to-speech languages, download the needed SR or TTS language installer from Speech Language Packs
