  1. My dictation used to wo rk some of the time. Now it doesn't work at all.


    I can only find my Microphone by clicking on window's Insignia + H this is the only way.I've gone thru several Microsoft q/a and have either already tried them or don't know how to follow them thru.When the microphone comes up it either reads ' initializing' or ' to use dictation select a field'. It stays on both responses and I don't know how to change text just for Microphone. In the past it worked off and on. Now it doesn't work at all and I don't think either of these the are the correct fixesWith bad arthritis, Dictation is a necessity.How do I fix this?

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:
