Have you tried going through the set-up sequence again?

Hi!!!! I know a couple of things about voice recognition. 1) You need a special headset with a microphone with boom- pick-up problems. 2)There are bugs in the system that allow for hackers. I've heard when the system was first introduced, it had problems recognizing speech- ( Oh Well, maybe that is cured by now). Here is an article to examine: http://.infoworld,com/article/7/02/01/HNvistaspeechbug_1.html
