Hello Prabhakar,

Windows Forms applications are entirely Unicode-enabled, meaning that each character is represented by a unique number, no matter what the platform, program, or language. ( So I am suspecting that there is a problem in the way you are reading or getting this tamil text.

I do not understand what you are talking about. What is "saved wave file
speech"? Do you try to do "Speech Recognition"?

hi i send the code to you if you i need any modifications then tell me

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
using (OpenFileDialog openFileDialog = new OpenFileDialog())

openFileDialog.Multiselect = false;
openFileDialog.Filter = "Wav audio file|*.wav";
openFileDialog.Title = "Open a Wav audio File";
if (openFileDialog.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
//System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("ta-IN");
//SpeechRecognitionEngine recognizer = new SpeechRecognitionEngine(culture );
recognizer.LoadGrammar(new DictationGrammar());

RecognitionResult Result = recognizer.Recognize();
if (Result != null)
foreach (RecognizedWordUnit Word in Result.Words)
//InputLanguage lang = GetArabicLang();
//if (lang == null)
// throw new NotSupportedException("tamil language keybord is not installed.");
////Set the current language of the system to
////the InputLanguage instance you need.
//InputLanguage.CurrentInputLanguage = lang;
//InputLanguage lan;
//richTextBox1.Text = Convert.ToString(Word.Text, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("ta-IN"));
textBox1.Text = Convert .ToString (Word.Text,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture("ta-IN"));
