It is very frustrating to see "key" features left behind for so long just 
because Microsoft decided to move forward. If Apple had done the same 
thing, I would bet that RunRev would have made it work in the very next 
version. Asking the end user to downgrade their speech sdk as a workaround 
is totally wrong!
