Language Support

The Microsoft Speech Platform SDK 11 provides support for 26 languages for both speech recognition and speech synthesis (TTS or text-to-speech). You must download a Runtime Language for each language that want to program against in your applications. A Runtime Language includes the language model, acoustic model, and other data necessary to provision a speech engine to perform speech synthesis or speech recognition in a particular language. There are separate Runtime Languages for speech recognition and speech synthesis. The version of the Runtime Languages that you use for development, for example version 11.0, must match the version of the Speech Platform Runtime that you installed.

Use the following link to download Runtime Languages for version 11 of the Speech Platform Runtime.

You can download Runtime Languages for use with the Speech Platform SDK 11 that support the following languages.
