  1. How do I restore ability to communicate with Cortana by typing rather than voice


    Until fairly recently Cortana allowed me to type my questions - now it forces me to talk. I much prefer the old system but cannot find a way of setting it back to turn off the talking and return to typing my questions.

    How do I turn off Cortana voice?

    Back in the olden days I used to communicate with Cortana by typing
    in my question. Now it has all changed and I seem to be able only to communicate by
    voice, but often I still want to type. How do I turn off Cortana voice communication and go back to typing?

    Or both.
    Is there ?


    Thanks !

    Can Cortana respond to my written inputs with voice rather than text ?

    It's perfectly ok to ask.. I think you can work out the answer for yourself.

    If you type in a question, it usually generates a web search. So a browser opens. Reading out a list of browser search results would not be very useful to anyone (If the user couldn't see, it would have to be interactive, allowing the user choice- not just read out).

    Other searches might find Settings, programs or apps.

    The sort of questions Cortana responds to by voice are:
    What did you dream about last night?
    How old are you?
