Windows Speech Recognition Macros

Windows Speech Recognition Macros – or WSR Macros for short – extends the usefulness of the speech recognition capabilities in Windows Vista. Users can create powerful macros that are triggered by spoken commands which can perform a series of tasks from as simple as inserting your mailing address to as complex as providing a completely different speech interaction with applications.

This code gallery contains useful Speech Macros written by Microsoft employees that not only demonstrate the power of WSR Macros, but also provide very useful utility functions all by themselves.

In order to use the sample Speech Macros contained in this code gallery, you must download, install, and run Windows Speech Recognition Macros here.


Additional info
Most of these samples have been discussed on Rob's Rhapsody.

Feel free to ask questions about and/or discuss these macros on the discussions tab, or send email to

For even more macros, as created by the community please check out the Files section of the ms-speech Yahoo! group here.
