Code example for perl speech recognition using SAPI 5.1 and Win32::OLE?

TROGDOR has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings Monks,

For days and nights I have been searching for a simple code example of how to set up a speech recognizer in perl using SAPI 5.1 and Win32::OLE. A variety of Google keyword searches have yet to find anything useful. Here's what I've found so far:

- misterhouse has a nice perl recognizer for MS, but it uses the older SAPI 4.0, which won't work under XP unless I download and install the now-obsolete SAPI 4.0 SDK.

- I've tried to follow along with the SAPI 5.1 tutorials for C++ and transpose them into perl. Here's how far I got:

use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Const ("Microsoft Speech Object Library"); my $recognizer = Win32::OLE->new('SAPI.SpSharedRecognizer'); my $recoctxt = $recognizer->CreateRecoContext();
It barfs on the CreateRecoContext.
Win32::OLE(0.1403) error 0x80040154: "Class not registered" in METHOD/PROPERTYGET "CreateRecoContext" at speech.pl line 11
Can anyone point me to a perl SAPI 5.1 example? Or offer suggestions or a tutorial page on how to transpose MS C++ API code into something that Win32::OLE can recognize?

Thanks,
TROGDOR

    Maybe it's a good idea to use Win32::SAPI5

      Win32::SAPI5 only implements the text to speech part of the SAPI5.
        It most certainly does not. It implements all classes that the Microsoft Speech API 5 defines...
