Voice recognition in .NET

Hi guys.

I want to incorporate voice recognition in a new .NET application I'm
developing. I would like to recognize among a group of 30-40 words. But I
would also like to avoid using 3dr party libraries... There is this nice
solution, this time for the cf, that fits exactly what I'm looking for, but
the source code is not available
(http://www.brains-n-brawn.com/default.aspx?vDir=noreco). Does any of you
guys have a hint, specially with some source code ?

Thanks very much, Junior.

There are two tools from Microsoft for speech recognition.

One tool is for conversational interfaces to applications, called Microsoft
Agent. This is the technology that presents the small animated characters
like the Professor, and Clippy. Not the most popular interfaces in the
world, but they were somewhat 'cutting edge' at the time. I am no expert on
Agent. It is possible that you can use the speech recognition bits without
showing the animated character but I simply do not know.

The other is specifically for call-center type applications, where you need
to have an application answer the phone and cope with human or touch-tone
responses to questions (like "Please enter your sixteen digit account
number, and press Pound").. Information on Microsoft Speech Server can be
found here: http://www.microsoft.com/speech/default.mspx

If your app is a rich client, or if you want to have the speech recognition
happen on the client, look into Agent.
