Cant's start Speech Server

    Question

  • Hi, I've installed a speech server 2007, but now it won't start. the errors in event viewer are:

    The main service was unable to start. Please check that it is configured correctly. Details: 'One or more worker processes could not be started. Please check preceding messages for exact cause.'.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    A SES worker process (PID 3816) died unexpectedly before the service completed starting. This broker (ID c0f2b681-e605-47e4-aa88-25eb6d2c66ab) has started 0 time(s).

    A SES worker process has exceeded maximum number of restarts (2). The service is unable to recover and will shutdown.

    The main service has no active SES workers available. New incoming sessions will be rejected until a new SES worker has started.

    The main service detected that a SES worker process (PID 3824) has terminated unexpectedly. Any sessions that were in progress have been aborted.

    I haven't installed any TTS language pack... maybe it's because of that... ??

     

    thanks

  • yeah,

    actually, while I posted, I configured speech server with a TTS Voice. It is now running.

    Can you point me now, some website, teaching me how can I use/configure speech server for a simple "hello world" call?

    Thanks!

  • The help file that comes with MSS has walkthroughs and MSS itself comes with a hello world app to test that a call works.

     

    The help content is also available at msdn - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb857803.aspx

    The Hello world sample is here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb813830%28v=office.12%29.aspx

    There is also an MSS community at http://Gotspeech.Net containing a forum with a wealth of info.
