    Windows dictation sometimes does not respond


    I use dictation a lot. When I press the windows+h keys, the box pops up that says, "listening" I say something, but it does not type anything. I press windows+h key again to close. No "bloop" sounds this time. I press windows+h keys again to open the dialogue box. No bloop when I open. I try to say something, but still it does not type anything. I press windows+h key to close. I hear a "bloop". I press windows+h key again to open dictation. I hear the "bloop" upon opening the box. Now dictation works. I finish dictation and press the windows+h and I hear a bloop


    I want dictation to work on the first time I press windows+h, not the third time.

    :)

    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.
