  2. Increase data cache for speech so you don't have to RESET it over and over.

    The capture or cache on this program seems to only be able to translate so much speech before it needs a refresh. It stops altogether and you talk as normal but it show your words. It just doesn't react at all. The way it works again is to press STOP then START again, as it must reset the cache I'm guessing? Usually then it is good again for a WHILE. But it wastes your time talking as you realise what you said didn't work and you try a couple more times then realise you must RESET. Today is the first…

  8. show/document glossary of common items

    Could you document common glossary of items/actions possible with dictate in Outlook, Word, PowerPoint. E.g. Sentences like "Hi, how are you", New paragraph with new line and additional line space automatically, command for creating bullet or number list, indent, bold, underline in Outlook/Word/PowerPoint, more tasks in PowerPoint like create title, apply theme, add shapes, change size, etc. Keep up great work - very helpful for people suffering from RSI

  9. Increase timing so that dictation does not punctuate so quickly.

    When dictating with punctuation set to automatic, the sentence is broken up by commas and periods uppercase and lowercase and starts to apply the punctuation even before you finish the sentence. Quite often the sentence is broken up into multiple pieces and then you have to go back and clean it up. Turning off punctuation then makes it challenging to manipulate the paragraph with other commands

  11. Dictate must be universal on the O/S level as a general input - not the app level like outlook, word etc.

    Dictate needs to be on the O/S level like on my android phone. On my cell I can pick to provide input via keyboard, writing or voice input and it works everywhere (with any app in any field) that is looking for input from me. Many of these request here are to get it to work with Edge, OneNote or I would like TEAMS, etc. but the application level is not where the work should be done - it has to be on the O/S level and used as an alternative input device just like a keyboard or Ink/pen then…

  15. Vietnamese voice support

    I feel that add-ins Dictate very helpful with my work, a person capable of typing is not good. However, the language that I often use is Vietnamese should be real good if the team develops more likely to receive voice in Vietnamese.

  17. Allow for Caps to be added post dictation

    I have used Nuance Dragon Speak for over a decade and that software is very good at allowing words or phrases to be hi-lighted post dictation and then the command "cap that" adds initial caps to the hi-lighted text. Dictate seems to miss this. t

  18. Provide the option to eliminate contractions.

    I prefer not to use contractions for example I would prefer to have "should have" show as such instead of "should've" - offer the user the option for the use of contractions or not.

  19. "New Paragraph" should be a new paragraph with a line space - not a new line.

    "New paragraph" command seems to offer only a new line - not a new paragraph, Requires user to go in and add a line break.

  20. Should access contact names in Outlook for better recognition

    Does note seem to recognize names from Outlook. I have used Nuance Dragon Speak for over a decade and that software is VERY good at this. I would have stayed with Nuance but the Add In always causes issues with the latest version of Outlook - if Dictate would work as well, this is a home run for MSFT.
