How do you find out if there is a mic on your computer, if you want to experiment with this?

Windows+h pressed, nothing happens.

thanks for this. Only problem is, saying 'delete that' doesn't do
anything. There isn't a directive as to how to make Windows
understand that she is receiving a command. Like my kids.

Use dictation to talk instead of type on your PC


Use dictation to convert spoken words into text anywhere on your PC
with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.


To start dictating, select a text field and press the Windows logo
key + H to open the dictation toolbar. Then say whatever's on your mind.



If you're using a tablet or a touchscreen, tap the
microphone button on the touch keyboard to start dictating. Tap it
again to stop dictation.


You can also stop dictating at any time by saying "stop dictation."


Note


Dictation is available in US English only. To use it, your PC needs
to be connected to the internet.


To dictate in other languages, use

Windows Speech Recognition.


Dictation commands


Use dictation commands to tell you PC what to do, like "delete that"
or "select the previous word."


The following table tells you what you can say. If a word or phrase
is in bold, it's an example. Replace it with similar words to get
the result you want.


table with 2 columns and 16 rows

To do this

Say

Clear a selection

Clear selection; unselect that

Delete the most recent dictation result or currently selected text

Delete that; strike that

Delete a unit of text, such as the current word

Delete word

Move the cursor to the first character after a specified word or phrase

Go after that; move after word; go to the end of paragraph; move to
the end of that

Move the cursor to the end of a unit of text

Go after word; move after word; go to the end of that; move to the
end of paragraph

Move the cursor backward by a unit of text

Move back to the previous word; go up to the previous paragraph

Move the cursor to the first character before a specified word or phrase

Go to the start of the word

Move the cursor to the start of a text unit

Go before that; move to the start of that

Move the cursor forward to the next unit of text

Move forward to the next word; go down to the next paragraph

Moves the cursor to the end of a text unit

Dictating letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols


You can dictate most numbers and punctuation by saying the number or
punctuation character. To dictate letters and symbols, say "start
spelling." Then

say the symbol or letter, or use the ICAO phonetic alphabet.


To dictate an uppercase letter, say "uppercase" before the letter.
For example, "uppercase A" or "uppercase alpha." When you're done,
say "stop spelling."


Here are the punctuation characters and symbols you can dictate.
