CorrectWords not accepting alternate words as a correction for SAPI 5 recognition result

Last reviewed: 7/8/2010

The information in this article applies to:

  • SpeechKit 6


The correctwords parameter is ignored for SAPI 5 recognition result corrections. It currently only supports correcting by selecting an alternate.


This is by design. SAPI 5.1 only supports correction via alternate selection. SAPI 5.3 (Vista) introduces an option to override the alternates and supply a correction.


Fixed in SpeechKit build for SAPI 5.3 (Vista) and SAPI 5.4 (Windows 7).
