    Hello there, wrong place for this, should be in Exchange 2007 Area. Anyway there has to be a reason for that. Probably the speech services needs another program running or service started, have you read the manual about speech engine and what programs does it need to start or requesits ? Havent found much about that error so i'm givig this link so that you can see if everything is configured correctly.

        same error sort of this is after an upgrade of server 2003 to 2008

        The main service encountered the following warning: 'Attempt 4 of 5 failed to configure working file directory 'C:\Users\GeoffM\LOCALS~1\Temp\1\SpeechWorkingFile s' : The type initializer for 'Microsoft.SpeechServer.Log.Diagnostics.Watson' threw an exception.
