    Creating a keystroke for Dictate?


    I would like to create a hotkey/shortcut to activate Dictate any window, not just Word instead of having to mouse click to activate. Has this been done? How do I do it? I'd use keys like this: www.amazon.com/Motospeed-Keyboards-Mechanical-Programmable-Switches/dp/B098PWQT3HWindows Key+H initializes the service, but a mouse click followed by Enter is required for subsequent uses of the service. I don't want to mouse back and forth so much.

    :)

  3. Dictation - Random Capitilization

    Hi TFLJ,

    It's possible that Dictation listens and analyzes your words in phrases or context clues. It is important to state the word clearly.

    By the way, since when did this behavior start? Have you made any changes or installed any updates on your computer before this issue?

    In order for us to sort this out, I suggest setting the Dictation to make all the letters in a word lowercase. Once this is enabled, try dictating again and see if it still randomly capitalizes letters or words.

    If the issue persists, then it is best that you train again your PC to recognize your speech. Follow these steps:

    1. Open Control Panel.
    2. Click Ease of Access > Speech Recognition.
    3. Under Configure your Speech Recognition experience, click the link Train your computer to better understand you option.
    4. Click Next and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Please let me know the result.

    Regards.

    Creating a keystroke for Dictate?

    Can I create an alternative keystroke combination to "replace" a malfunctioning key?

    Thank you. none of the suggestions corrected the problem. (This is not a separate keyboard but 1/2 of the device, albeit a dumb half with a battery.)

    The question was: Can I create an alternate set of keystrokes such as ctrl-{ to act as the key that won't work?

    Because only methods that relate to hardware were offered, I will assume creating alternate keystrokes in the windows environment (i.e., not just a program) is not possible.

    Thanks,

    Sally
