    As most of this forum visitors are native english speakers,
    Could someone check, if the grammar of the text bellow is correct :)

    Thank you

    Source codes are provided in appendix E. Also, as there is no SAPI compatible recognition engine, examined, how accurate English version of MS speech recognizer was.

    Although MS Word (HA!) says there are no spelling or grammar issues - the sentence doesn't make any sense.

    Source codes are provided in appendix E. As there isn't a SAPI compatible recognition engine to examine how accurate the English version speech recognizer was, (some conclusion)

    Would make sense - but I'm not sure what you're trying to say :(

    Don't start with 'also'. Don't think you need to say 'also' at all.

    Source code is included as appendix E. The accuracy of the English version of MS speech recognizer was examined manually as there is no SAPI compatible recognition engine.

    ?
    I don't know what you are trying to say and in what context either. Is this about another document in the appendix ?

    Absolutely:)

    The phrase depends on did you examine the accuracy of the MS speech recongniser because no SAPI compat. recognition engine was present, or do you mean something else ?

    Should also really be "was no" not "is no" - as the test happened in the past and not the present time of writing (I assume) ?

    because no SAPI compat. recognition engine was present.

    text:

    In the third chapter, detailed descriptions of blablabla are offered. Source codes are provided in appendix E. Also, as there is no SAPI compatible recognition engine, the accuracy of the English version of MS speech recognizer was examined with voice commands.

    hmm...

    but if there ' is no SAPI compatible recognition engine' right now, then saying 'was no' can imply that there IS a one now. If you know what I mean !

    Which is quite possible! If it's a scientific experiment, you have to report on what happened at the time. At the time there wasn't one, but if you repeated the experiment today, there may well be :) It's all very difficult not knowing the whole picture. (There may be one in existence, but not available - which spins it around even more!)

    OK - so this reads now............

    In the third chapter, detailed descriptions of blablabla (were?) offered. Source codes are provided in appendix E. As there is/was no SAPI compatible recognition engine, the accuracy of the English version of MS speech recognizer was examined with voice commands.

    How about:

    As there is no SAPI compatible recognition engine, source codes are provided in appendix E. Accurate English was examined of MS speech version recogniser also

    I still haven't worked out what the original sentence is supposed to mean. :( How about this...?

    As there is no SAPI-compatible recognition engine we decided to test the accuracy of the English version of MS Speech Recognizer. (See Appendix E for sample source code).

    Another possibility:

    As there is no SAPI-compatible recognition engine we used the English version of MS Speech Recognizer as a test of accuracy. (See Appendix E for source code samples).
