Sorry, but I can’t remember the hotkey for using the dictation feature in JAWS. It works well, assuming you don’t have any weird words in your dictation. For example, when I used it quite a qhile back, I was writing my fictional stories, containing the word Digimon. The dictation brought that out as did your mom, so it’s not as accurate as you’d like to believe on that score. It’s pretty good though for people who need to use it/just can’t remember the hotkey.

Hi,

I like the built in Speech Dictation in Windows 10.  Like the Word “Dictate” add in it is just a basic program but responds well and is pretty accurate.

Hello everyone,

 

I have a client who wishes to use some dictation software with JAWS.  We have tried the new Dictate add-in with Word and JAWS.  It works reasonably well, but seems to lack some of the “bells and whistles” like literal numbers or word and correction.  But for get thoughts on a page and going back and “cleaning up, it is a good choice.

 

I get very mixed reviews on Dragon Naturally speaking and JAWS.  I read everything from it works well to they don’t play nice together and it is difficult to set up.

 

Wondering about experiences anyone may have had trying to use Dragon with JAWS.  My person is running JAWS 2020, and Office 365 on a Windows 10 computer.  If it does work what do we have to do to make it so?  Also a question of a headset mic vs tabletop.  My client doesn’t care for headsets, but if a must have, a recommendation for a reasonably priced one.

 

Thanks

 

Jim

Was wondering if anyone has knowledge if Spark Instant Messenger is compatible with JAWS 2018?

Thanks
