    How to dictate text in German language


    Hello,
    I run English windows 10 with an English speaking country setting. I downloaded the German language pack, but if I try to dictate a text in German by pressing Windows+H key, it only recognizes the text in English. What is the solution? Thanks everybody, regards, Thomas

  3. Dictation and Text predictions behaving abnormally.

    I am having odd problems regarding the new text suggestion and dictation features in windows ten. At first, I was unable to open the dictation tool bar or even see the text suggestion box when i was typing. I tweaked a few settings (exactly what i tweaked,
    i forgot) but suddenly, both of these features started working. After restarting my computer following an update, these features stopped working altogether, like before. Is there something that i am missing here? I have double checked that all the settings
    are on and that the language is set to English (US).

    I suppose the problem could be with the software controlling the keyboard because i just noticed that my onscreen keyboard also does not launch using the system icon. Any suggestions of what i should do?
