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.

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.

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

hello;
this morning I was able to dictate an email address into the edit field,
another thing I learned is,

windows+h starts the dictation,
the spacebar will stop it.

no need to say, stop dictation.
at least it worked hear.

I will practice some more.

you need to actually no the email address, because, it only types in what it
hears.

Spacebar makes it easier to stop. Thanks for that.

I can't use Windows plus H either.I have to press Windows, search for Speech
Recognicion, then press ENTER. If I am in a text window in another window, I
can then use dictation.

Subject: Re: Use dictation to talk instead of type on your PC

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

Move to the end of the word; go to the end of the paragraph

Enter one of the following keys: Tab, Enter, End, Home, Page up,
Page down, Backspace, Delete

Tap Enter; press Backspace

Select a specific word or phrase

Select word

Select the most recent dictation result

Select that

Select a unit of text

Select the next three words; select the previous two paragraphs

Turn spelling mode on and off

Start spelling; stop spelling



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.

Hi Sandra!

The best way to find out if you have a built in mike on your computer, is to do the following:

Press the Windows key or CTRL+Escape.

Type sound into the search field.

You will hear:

Sound control panel.

Press enter.

You are in a four tab dialog to adjust your sound, mike, and other settings.

Shift+Tab, and press CTRL+Tab to get to the record Tab of this dialog.

If you have a mike on your computer, if you tab once, you will be in a list of Micraphones. The mike that is built into your computer, will say something like:

Real tech mike or some name that will let you know that you have a mike on your computer.

The others in the list, will be your headphones mike, if there is one in your headphones, and so on.

Chances are, if you can even get to this record tab in the sound dialog, you do have a mike on your computer. Laptops most likely have a microphone.

Desktops usually do not have a built in microphone.

Have a great one, and I hope you have a mike either on the computer, or in your headphones.

Take care, Sandra!

That is one thing I will have to invest in before going back to school (if I decide to), a headset. I have a landline phone headset which I swear by (frees up the hands for a Brailler or notetaker), but don’t have one for the computer. I will check out the control panel tomorrow—getting late, and I must be disciplined and get my butt into bed at a not-unreasonable hour!

Hi Sandra!

The best way to find out if you have a built in mike on your computer, is to do the following:

Press the Windows key or CTRL+Escape.

Type sound into the search field.

You will hear:

Sound control panel.

Press enter.

You are in a four tab dialog to adjust your sound, mike, and other settings.

Shift+Tab, and press CTRL+Tab to get to the record Tab of this dialog.

If you have a mike on your computer, if you tab once, you will be in a list of Micraphones. The mike that is built into your computer, will say something like:

Real tech mike or some name that will let you know that you have a mike on your computer.

The others in the list, will be your headphones mike, if there is one in your headphones, and so on.

Chances are, if you can even get to this record tab in the sound dialog, you do have a mike on your computer. Laptops most likely have a microphone.

Desktops usually do not have a built in microphone.

Have a great one, and I hope you have a mike either on the computer, or in your headphones.

Take care, Sandra!

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

experiment with this?

Hi, Bill,

 

I have seen the list.  When I speak the commands, though, with

Windows+h pressed, nothing happens.

CTRL will also stop the dictation thing. You could wait until you hear the sound again, though/that’s also a good way, just tto make sure you’re done talking and don’t have anything more to say/keeps typing if you’ve paused for a moment but pick back up again before the sound plays—I’m gonna say about a minute or two, I guess after the last word/s are spoken.

hello;
this morning I was able to dictate an email address into the edit field,
another thing I learned is,

windows+h starts the dictation,
the spacebar will stop it.

no need to say, stop dictation.
at least it worked hear.

I will practice some more.

you need to actually no the email address, because, it only types in what it
hears.

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

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

Move to the end of the word; go to the end of the paragraph

Enter one of the following keys: Tab, Enter, End, Home, Page up,
Page down, Backspace, Delete

Select a specific word or phrase

Select word

Select the most recent dictation result

Turn spelling mode on and off

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.
