Speech option disappears from Tablet PC Input Panel

    Although speech in control works fine and I can
    successfully retrain the speech engine from there, I
    can't use it in anger, because the option for speach has
    disppeared from the Tablet PC Input Panel. When I click
    on Tools, Options, there is a blank tab next
    between "Writing Tools" and "Advanced". Clicking on the
    blank tab brings up a blank pane.

    Meanwhile, clicking on Tools, Speech in MS Word has no
    obvious result.

    Searching microsoft.com gave only the suggestion that I
    try "reinstall the SAPI component from the original
    source or CD", but, for this PC (a TC 1000), I only
    have "System Recovery CDs".

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    (PS I felt very retro as I had to type this rather than
    using speech!)

    Yes, yes, yes.

    That fixed it even though the problem referred to in the
    knowledge base is a different one. I am having to
    retrain, but what's wrong with re-reading Aesop and the
    others? In case it helps anyone, all the relevant
    services seemed to be installed.

    Many thanks indeed,

  4. Thanks for the verification Graham.

    FYI, I submitted a change request to include the missing Speech option as
    one of the symptoms listed in the article.
