XP Pro and XP Home have the underpinnings for voice-to-text. However you
need to install a program that includes voice-to-text features, such as MS
Office, to get any functionality out of it. If installed, these features
would only be available within the Office programs. If you want to use
voice-to-text in other programs and voice menu commands installing a
version of Dragon Speaking Naturally is the way to go.

Exception: XP Tablet PC Edition includes basic voice-to-text/voice menu
capability. Many tablet users will still opt to use DSN instead of what is
offered in this particular version of XP.

While it may have been available in Office 2000, I don't remember using
voice recognition/speech-to-text with that version. It is available in
Office XP and Office 2003.

When installing Office, choose Custom install and select these components
from the list of available components. If Office is already installed run a
"repair" from within an office program or start Office setup, select to
"add/remove components to existing installation."
