Windows 10: How to remove Optional Features (text-speech, speech rec., etc)?
How to remove Optional Features (text-speech, speech rec., etc)?
I've just installed 1607 on a few of my machines (clean installs) and am now tweaking and cleaning up unnecessary features.
All is well, apart from a few "Optional features" that don't seem to have an 'Uninstall' option, namely a bunch of text-to-speech, speech recognition and character recognition. (see attached scree-shot)
Each of the options shown have a "Manage" button, but this doesn't seem to lead to any way to removed this stuff.
I'm also a bit puzzled as to why it has three different English versions (AU, GB and US) - my region is set to Australia.
It's only around 250MB, but it's space I could better use for other things.
I'd be grateful if anyone has any ideas of how to remove these items.
If you click a language underneath each option, you will see a further set of options. One is remove (that language).
But please note:
In order to search settings you must have a language set consistent with your display language, else you get 'Search results aren't quite ready yet...'.
So that's as much as you can do - remove langauges.
Bear in mind that as soon as you start removing anything supplied as default in Win 10, it will be replaced if
- you receive a major upgrade
- do an in-place upgrade repair install.
Best not to fiddle unnecessarily.. you can get bitten.
After clicking on the "Manage" button, I end up on the "Region/Language" page of settings.
But it's only showing a single language "English (Australia)". I'm a bit stumped as to where all this stuff has come from, as I have never selected GB or US for any language options during the install...
If that screen (your last post) only shows 1 you only have one installed. (However it is possible to add other optional languages for speech etc)
I think the way the Option Features screen works is that if sthg there is installed if you click it you will find a way to remove it. Otherwise you get a Manage button which takes you to where you might add it.
Try clicking one you don't believe you have and then Manage.
I had one app listed there (not a language feature) and I could uninstall it.
Was your OS supplied as Australian, or was Australian added later and others removed? That could be the underlying reason for hte list of optional features.
I had to change mine to UK English.
I use speech to text frequently with my iPhone because I don't do well with the virtual keyboard. and I like the autocorrect for thingls like dont and cant. I'm pretty good with my desktop REAL keyboard, but I just got a microphone after my...
I ran a Mal ware program and restarted my computer. It did not start my Windows Speech Recognition App. I got this message. "Speech Recognition could not start the language configuration is not supported. The recognizer language must match the...

So I'm working on a c# app that uses Text To Speech and Automatic Speech Recognition, in Visual Studio 2015 on Windows 10.
I'm using System.Speech for Synthesis (TTS) and Microsoft.Speech for Recognition (ASR).

Hello, just installed Win10 Pro 64 on my laptop and was wondering if they built in a Text-to-speech app? Like something you can copy-paste text in?
