Annoying problem in Vista with speech recognition

Hi,

I've just started using Vista's speech recognition program and have been (mostly) pleasantly surprised by its accuracy and ease of use.

However...

Vista keeps grabbing my typing mistakes and adding them to its list of words, and I don't know how to stop it/correct it/delete that spelling mistake from its "library". For example, the word "faith" is now being transcribed as "faithE". I've tried using the correction dialogue, but it maintains the "faithE" whenever I try dictating "faith" however much I correct it.

Going to the speech dictionary's no use - I can only alter the words I've added individually, by myself, rather than those Vista picks up, and so "faithE" isn't there to be deleted. The same thing has happened with "spirit", which Vista transcribes as "sspirit".

Hope I've explained myself clearly enough - any ideas?

Thanks.

Isn't there an option for different profiles for the speach program? Just make anew profile and start again or something?

Not at home, so can't check, verify this at the moment. :(

Yeah, I could... but it would just delay the problem, not solve it, as well as require me to do more training. I'll do that if it gets too annoying... :)
