Recognizing Speech in Other Languages

The market for Windows Phone apps extends across many countries and regions. Supporting other languages is sometimes critical to effectively monetizing your app. Fortunately, the speech features of the Windows Phone SDK make it possible for you to provide speech capabilities for numerous languages.

In this section we look at selecting a language and region-specific speech recognizer to recognize speech in a non-English language.

The sample for this section is located in the Speech/NonEnglishRecognizer directory of the WPUnleashed.Examples project in the downloadable sample code.
