Outlook Pro problem in Win XP Pro

When ever I open Outlook (Office Pro) it demands that I set up the microphone feature, that it will only take 5 min to set up. I press no, then it takes me to word. Very annoying. How can I shut this useless (to me) feature off?!?! It takes forever to get out of this process because I have only 128 megs of ram. (I know i have to uprade!) So how do I make it so I never see this pop up screen again!?!?!?

I had a problem similiar to yours and managed to resolve it by fiddling with the Language Bar, which should at least be in the taskbar when you open an office product. If using English, it should look like a blue box with a white 'EN' inside.

Click the 'Settings' option and change the preferences in the popup. I remember there are options in there to disable stuff like voice and handwriting recognition, etc.
