The Fall Creators Update to Windows 10 brought a new dictation feature that enables you to make an interpretation of talked words into text a considerable measure less demanding than before — and in any application and over the work area encounter.
Dictation focuses exclusively on converting voice into text, so you can't use it to navigate the desktop and apps using your voice as you can with Speech Recognition.
In this Windows 10 tutorial, we'll walk you through the easy steps to start using voice dictation on your device.
If you have a microphone connected to your device, dictation will be enabled by default, and you'll be able to access it using the Windows + H keyboard shortcut keys. If you’re using a tablet or a touchscreen, tap the microphone button on the touch keyboard to start dictating. Tap it again to stop dictation.
Keeping in mind the end goal to appropriately invoke the dictation panel, make a point to put the mouse cursor on any text field, and then use the Windows + H shortcut keys.
At the point when the voice dictation panel shows up, and you see the microphone icon in blue, you can immediately start dictating.
Dictation is available in US English only. To use it, your PC needs to be connected to the internet.
To dictate in other languages, use Windows Speech Recognition.
Once you're done, say "stop dictating," or after five seconds of inactivity, dictation will turn off automatically.
If the panel gets in the way, you can always drag it around the desktop. When you're done dictating, you can dismiss it pressing any key in the keyboard, clicking anywhere outside of the experience, or clicking the close (X) button on the right.
The up arrow button allows you to open the touch keyboard or handwriting experience, whichever you were using last.
Use dictation commands to tell you PC what to do, like “delete that” or “select the previous word.”
The following table tells you what you can say. If a word or phrase is in bold, it's an example. Replace it with similar words to get the result you want.
|To do this||Say|
|Clear a selection||Clear selection; unselect that|
|Delete the most recent dictation result or currently selected text||Delete that; strike that|
|Delete a unit of text, such as the current word||Delete word|
|Move the cursor to the first character after a specified word or phrase||Go after that; move after word; go to the end of paragraph; move to the end of that|
|Move the cursor to the end of a unit of text||Go after word; move after word; go to the end of that; move to the end of paragraph|
|Move the cursor backward by a unit of text||Move back to the previous word; go up to the previous paragraph|
|Move the cursor to the first character before a specified word or phrase||Go to the start of the word|
|Move the cursor to the start of a text unit||Go before that; move to the start of that|
|Move the cursor forward to the next unit of text||Move forward to the next word; go down to the next paragraph|
|Moves the cursor to the end of a text unit||Move to the end of the word; go to the end of the paragraph|
|Enter one of the following keys: Tab, Enter, End, Home, Page up, Page down, Backspace, Delete||Tap Enter; press Backspace|
|Select a specific word or phrase||Select word|
|Select the most recent dictation result||Select that|
|Select a unit of text||Select the next three words; select the previous two paragraphs|
|Turn spelling mode on and off||Start spelling; stop spelling|
Dictating letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols
You can dictate most numbers and punctuation by saying the number or punctuation character. To dictate letters and symbols, say "start spelling." Then say the symbol or letter, or use the ICAO phonetic alphabet.
To dictate an uppercase letter, say “uppercase” before the letter. For example, “uppercase A” or “uppercase alpha.” When you’re done, say “stop spelling.”
Here are the punctuation characters and symbols you can dictate.
|To insert this||Say|
at symbol; at sign
Pound symbol; pound sign; number symbol; number sign; hash symbol; hash sign; hashtag symbol; hashtag sign; sharp symbol; sharp sign
Dollar symbol; dollar sign; dollars symbol; dollars sign
Percent symbol; percent sign
And symbol; and sign; ampersand symbol; ampersand sign
Asterisk; times; star
Open paren; left paren; open parenthesis; left paren
Close paren; right paren; close parenthesis; right parenthesis
Hyphen; dash; minus sign
Forward slash; divided by
Period; dot; decimal; point
Apostrophe; open single quote; begin single quote; close single quote; close single quote; end single quote
Equal symbol; equal sign; equals symbol; equal sign
Question mark; question symbol
Open bracket; open square bracket; left bracket; left square bracket
Close bracket; close square bracket; right bracket; right square bracket
Open curly brace; open curly bracket; left curly brace; left curly bracket

Open quotes; begin quotes; close quotes; end quotes; open double quotes; begin double quotes; close double quotes; end double quotes
In the same way, to input a letter using uppercase, you must use the "uppercase" command, followed by the letter. For example, uppercase m will give you an M.
