If you ever dreamt of talking to your PC and have it write for you, efficiently while working in Office on Windows, then your wishes have just come true. Meet Dictate, an add-in for Microsoft Office on Windows, that lets you type hands-free in Outlook, Word, and PowerPoint.
Dictate, a Microsoft Garage project supports 29 spoken languages with a real-time translation of up to 60 languages. While speaking, you could say commands like “new line”, “stop dictation” and “Enter” to perform certain natural actions. It also supports two modes of punctuations: Auto and manual (with commands like “Question Mark”, “Period”, “Exclamation mark”, “Comma”).
Dictate uses the state-of-the-art speech recognition technology behind Cortana and Microsoft Translator which leads to highly accurate speech to text results.
