  1. Applications Muting when using Text-to-Speech


    When I play a video on Youtube, it looks like this:

    Then I run my tts reader, and it looks like this:

    To sum up the images, all applications that make sound that are not the tts reader are muted.

    I have found the threads in Windows 7-8 that tell me to disable the sound when you get phone calls. That's not my problem. I have already tried it:

    I'm hoping there some new setting in Windows 10 that will turn this irritating feature off. I use my text to speech reader about a hundred times a day, and I use my other audio applications a hundred times a day. I don't want to have to constantly turn the volume back on when I am listening to anything - everything.

    :)

    Windows 10 Speech Recognition Show Numbers Issue

    But the speech recognition function I'm having a problem with is a Windows application. I happened to describe the problem as I experience it when creating text in Outlook Office emails. The same issue occurs when I use Windows speech recognition to create
    text in an MS Word file. I really just want to know how to disable the Windows navigating functions when using Windows speech recognition. I just want to use speech recognition to create text. And not for moving around the document or navigating between
    applications.

    Thanks

    could this idea be already be made?

    Hi andymanic1336,



    At the moment, Nokia phones do not have a voice/speech to text feature, however, you can check "Hear and Write" app which is a completely free speech to text and voice recognition application for some Nokia phones. You can use this application to convert
    your speech into text and the paste it in any application. Also, you can send text messages by just saying the recipient and the text. This software is based on Google voice recognition technology and web services and supports the following languages: English
    (UK and US), Italian, French, German, Spanish and Russian. The application can be downloaded at store.nokia.com
