    • Will this be available for iPhone and iPad? Word, PowerPoint , OneNote and OneDrive?

      When on the go, it would be super handy to use voice to make small edits to a document

      • German Umlaute screw up recognition

        Dictation works great in English. I switched to German and words without Umlaute (ä, ö, ü) are recognized well. If there's a word with an Umlaut, the Umlaut is interpreted as some other instruction and screws up the existing text, splitting words and moving the cursor.
        Is this known, or do I have to change a particular setting? I used both keyboard layouts, English (International) and German. Same behavior.

        • Make english voice dictation commands equally available in all language

          It seems that not all english commands are equally available in the other listed languages. Why?
          The speech API has been out there for at least 10 years, so the commands are known.

          Also there seems to be no learning from correction in the text. Can't you USE the distributed intelligence of people to dictate texts in such way that the program actually profits from the improvements that people apply? By assigning a confidence factor to people, you can modify the "trust" that the cloud based speech API assigns to a registered user thus giving greater influence to the persons…

            • Make it into a voice-controlled word processor

              Can Dictate be combined with quasi-AI to enable the user to open and navigate through files, select specific text and paragraphs, amend the text, have it read out loud, activate track changes and save files? This would require some interaction with the machine. However, I cannot envisage the language going beyond c.1,000 statements.

              • Improve punctuation in Office 365

                When I say “period” to put in the punctuation, it sometimes puts a period and sometimes it puts in the word, “period.” The same thing happens with comma. And sometimes it puts a space before the punctuation . Like that , or like this. Also, most of the time it starts with an upper case letter after the period. but sometimes it doesn’t.

                    • Make punctuation smarter. In italian every small pause became a period.

                      And after a comma, Dictate starts with a capital letter

                        • This is the 4th installation have made and it has issues

                          This release seems to not recognize the mic until I use the mic with another application. The word recognition and punctuation are not as accurate compared to the prior release I used. Still lots of potential and a great tool.

                                      • Is there documentation on how data is used? If not, can you post it?

                                        We have a request form a user to turn on the Dictate function in Office, Security has done an initial evaluation and are wondering if you can provide what/how is this data used/shared?

                                        • Not working on Office 2013

                                          Dictate does not working on Office 2013.

                                          Windows10 Ver.1803(17134.165)
                                          Office 2013 Pro Ver.15.0.5049.1000

                                          If I use them on Word or Outlook, Dictate tool shows the message "Dictating microphone, please wait...". And them, programs are shutdown.
