Angry Vista speech recognition doesn't work

My Vista speech recognition doesn't work. When I go to speech recognition options, there's just empty space. Please help me!

Are you using the applet in control panel for this ? if you are then there may be a missing system file or two, or you don't have admin access to all of the features. It does install as standard so you dont have to tick a box somewhere to get it to show.

To run a file check, open a command box (type CMD in the start\run line, press enter) from there type SFC /scannow (the space after SFC is required) this will get windows to check all the system files against their known sizes and CRC or MD5 numbers, any corrupt or just plain missing are replaced from the i386 store folder, you don't need any disk in the DVD drive for this.

When complete there will be a short message to tell you if any problems were found or not.
