    Defiantly not fixed in 5.5.0f3 which is really frustrating because it would be such a useful tool to use.

    Please, please fix it Unity or get Microsoft to fix it

    I've been in contact with Unity, and they claim it's the fault of Windows and they will never fix it (this "fix" is just better debug output). The solution is to downgrade windows (or upgrade to the next version when it comes out), as 1607 is broken. The problem is, any users on the Anniversary Edition won't be able to use your stuff.

    Our solution, for those who really need this, is to spin the voice recognition off into a separate process, and send the inputs back into Unity.

    Good luck!

    This is definitely not fixed, confirming still broken for 64 bit, as noted by others.

    I am also running into this issue on 5.5.0f3. Building for 32 bit will allow the dictation to work, but 64 bit builds (or the 64 bit Unity editor) do not work. I have heard that others are able to get the dictation to work in-editor when using the 32 bit build of Unity. Additionally, it sounds like an update for Windows 10 around October 2016 caused this issue. See the last post of this link for more info:
