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

Hank,

  In Windows 10:

Go to “Settings”

Go to “Ease of Access”

Tab once to get to list of items under “ease of Access”

Arrow down to “Interaction”

This will give you a list of four items

The top one is Speech

Tab over to the list of items to set up Speech Dictation.

Here you can turn on dictation and make other selections.

There are other options which you can access from this screen or under the “Time & Language” area in settings. This also has a ”speech” settings area.

 

You can leave dictation on  or allow for sleep until you call for it.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Dan

So once you enable it which keystroke do you use to activate it when you actually need to dictate something? I will be upgrading to Windows 10 here in a few days and this would be great to know as I'm not a great typist.

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,
You can give the software a spoken "wake up" command. Or you can use key stroke. At the moment the command to come out of sleep mode eludes me.

I don’t have a mike hooked up to my computer though, so it wouldn’t help anyway. It seemed good when I used it before, though/would really help me with writing papers and things/would help someone who couldn’t use a keyboard. I thought the hotkey was windows h but that doesn’t seem to be the case any more. I can’t get that to work with Word.

I don't think the hot key works unless you set things up in settings. that wasn't always the case, but seems to be with later versions of windows.

Wait a minute, Windows speech that's not what my question was about. I think in this case I will be using the Cortana I think of speech speech is something that is reading you information.

So once you enable it which keystroke do you use to activate it when you actually need to dictate something? I will be upgrading to Windows 10 here in a few days and this would be great to know as I'm not a great typist.

Hank,
In Windows 10:
Go to “Settings”
Go to “Ease of Access”
Tab once to get to list of items under “ease of Access”
Arrow down to “Interaction”
This will give you a list of four items
The top one is Speech
Tab over to the list of items to set up Speech Dictation.
Here you can turn on dictation and make other selections.
There are other options which you can access from this screen or under the “Time & Language” area in settings. This also has a ”speech” settings area.

You can leave dictation on or allow for sleep until you call for it.

Hope this helps.

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

Hi thank you, I don't think I won't have any problems arrowing around and making any necessary corrections. As I have to do that quite often sometimes with my Mac.

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.

Dictation and speech recognition or the same thing. When your computer reads text to you with a voice that speaks that is a speech sensitizer. When the computer listens to use speak that is speech recognition.

Oh I have a USB mic that's no problem. I'm using that connected to my Mac right now. The computer I'm gonna be using is loaded up in a car and going to the computer hospital sometime this afternoon to get a quote. To get windows 10. Already got the "upgrade my jaws, and have money set aside for that.

Like most things, Microsoft documents this pretty well:  

Use dictation to talk instead of type on your PC

Also, you can use the web search engine of your choosing, and put in exactly what's between the square brackets, [+"Windows 10" Speech Recognition Dictation] and you get scads of tutorials about this.  I can't know who might like which tutorial, but they're targeted.  It even returns documents with the equivalent of keyboard shortcuts documents for voice commands.

Subject: dictation software

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?
