Microsoft’s Windows 10 contains speech recognition linked to Cortana that allows you to dictate speech through your Windows machine’s microphone, and convert it into typing in a text field. Here’s how to use it:
– Go to Settings.
– Go to Time & Language > Speech > Related settings and click "Speech, inking and typing privacy settings". This will enable speech services and typing suggestions.
– Use the Windows Key-H hotkey combination in any text field to load a Cortana box that records your voice (through the machine’s microphone).
You may have to type manual punctuation, but you can still save time by dictating emails, messages, and more.
