Language packs contain language resources that provide text-to-speech and speech recognition functionality that is used by the Response Group Service. By default, an English (United States) language pack is installed when you deploy Office Communications Server 2007 R2. You can install additional language packs if you require support for another language.
To install a language pack, you must do the following:
- Install the language pack.
- Use RGSLang.exe to register the language pack.
- Restart the Response Group Service application.
Installing a Language Pack
Additional language packs are available in the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 CD. The language packs are used for text-to-speech and speech recognition. These speech technologies are used to configure a welcome message or Interactive Voice Response for Response Groups.
|The language pack must be installed on each Front End Server in an Enterprise pool.|
|If you have an East Asian language pack installed, we recommend
that you also install the files to support East Asian languages.
This applies to any computer running Windows Server 2003 that needs
to access the Response Group Configuration Tool. For details about
how to enable East Asian language support, see Add Language Support
To install a language pack
Log on to the Enterprise Edition server or Standard Edition server with an account that is a member of the Domain Adminsgroup.
Insert the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 CD.
In Windows Explorer, move to the CD drive.
Browse to the Setup\amd64\Setup\Speech folder.
Double-click on the folder that corresponds to the language you want to install and then double-click on the msserverspeechlangpack_ Language_Culture_ID.msi file.
Registering the Language Pack
The RGSLang.exe utility is an Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Resource Kit tool that you use to register language packs. The tool compares the registry settings with the language(s) that are configured in Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). If there are differences, the tool updates WMI to match the registry settings.
|Because WMI properties are set at the pool level, you do not need to register the language pack on each Front End Server in an Enterprise Edition pool.|
