been fighting with Speech Server 2004 the last couple days. it had been winning ... but i finally bludgeoned it into submission tonight. yesterday was an install fest: Windows Server 2003, IIS 6, Windows Updates, Enterprise Instrumentation, Speech Server, Speech SDK. i just want to use it from a PPC with the PIE Speech add-in (over WiFi), so i do not have a dialogic board. Speech Server comes with 1 sample that uses the MapPoint Web Service. it sucks as a sample because it has too many dependencies. e.g. i want to get the sample working now, but i have to wait 3 or so days to get my MapPoint user and pass. also, it has config info for working behind proxy servers, which is fine if you are behind a proxy server; but i'm not, and i cant find an intuitive way to get it to ignore those settings. would have preferred a simpler app (in addition) just to do some speech reco and TTS
