    Dictation not working


    This error 0x80049dd3 seems to be a known bug now that is not allowing dictation to work in Windows 10 and 11.I am frustrated since this is an accessibility issue for me as I have reduced hand mobility.Is there an estimated time for this to be fixed and released?Will this be a patch or with a monthly update?

    :)

  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.
