    Dictating mails or documents

    Just out of curiosity when I right click say a spelling mistake there is an option to read out loud. Is this a feature in 10 that does it the opposite way ie I say something and the word comes up on my machine and types it for me??

    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:

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

    Please let me know the result.

    Dictating mails or documents

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Dictating mails or documents :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
