Voice reading and voice recognition

P: n/a
I would like to add both voice to my program to read
aloud to the user

And,

I would like to add Speech recognition to my same program
so he can speak text into my program.

As a VB.Net developer, what is the best choice for adding
these functions into my code?

My platforms are Windows 2000 and XP.

Just point me to the onramp. :o)

Thanks!

Speech Server comes to mind. Check out Casey's stuff on
www.brains-n-brawn.com - he's got a good bit of stuff there - that's a
mighty big area you're asking about and a lot of different ways to tackle
it. There are a ton of third party components out there that do IVR and
Voice Rec, and I know some of the more popular ones have their API's
exposed. Speech Server and SALT remain pretty good alternatives though from
my experience.

Does it narrow the playing field to say...

I would like to stand on the shoulders of whatever is
already distributed as a integral part of Windows XP
operating system so my user does not have to download
allot to get my program going.

And I would like to use free stuff on the coding side
using my Visual Studio .Net 2003

And all I am looking for is to be able to pass a word
that I have as a variable to a TTS engine to speak.

And all I am looking for is to be able to receive a word
from a speech recog engine to go off and do something
with it in my program.
