  1. Word Dictation


    Why is is that dictation in word works when i play videos off the web but does not work when the same videos are played from an outside source like my phone. It also does not work when i dictate using my voice. I have checked, microphone is not muted, have done several checks but have not succeeded. Anything else i can try?

    :)

  2. 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.
     
  3. Voice commands to format dictated text in Word?

    Okay, but the issue is not about Word - it is about the commands available for Windows 10 dictation. What commands are available to format text? Are there any commands that exist that are not present on this
    list
    ? If that list contains every possible command, then where would I submit a feature request to include formatting commands in the next reworking of Windows dictation? Again - the dictation software is the problem, not Word. It seems like you are really
    interested in shunting my problem elsewhere instead of saying "I don't know the answer"!

    Voice dictation in Word

    I don't know what you're using for dictation, but if it's the standard Microsoft Speech Recognition, you should try the

    Dictate add-on for Word.
