      • Verbesserung der Spracherkennung

        Ihren Ansatz, dass man bei Word seine Texte per Sprache eingeben kann,ist bei Microsoft seit mindestens 15 Jahren überfällig. Vielen Dank für Ihre jetzigen Aktivitäten.
        Leider ist die Spracherkennung aber nicht befriedigend und damit die App. nicht einsetzbar.
        Gibt es demnächst ein Update? Es gibt doch bereits externe Anbieter von Spracherkennungssoftware. Auch Amazone, Google, Android können per Sprache gesteuert werden. Vielleicht wäre auch die Idee mit den Textvorschläge bei der schriftlichen Form bei der Stimmerkennung zu arbeiten. könnten als Ansatz hilfreich sein.
        Vielen Dank Simon

          • Make it on Windows 10

            I actually have been opening up word and turning this on, then going back into other applications on Windows 10 and speaking to enter text in those applications, it just writes it right in without me having to copy and paste. It gets a bit slow when I do this but it just showed me how awesome it would be in Windows 10.

            Can you guys suggest to the other Microsoft guys to make speech recognition on Windows 10 use Cortana and not the suuuuuuuuuuper old speech recognition. I have found that the Cortana speech recognition is lightyears better than…

              • Please officially incorporate this into Office 365!

                It is far more productive that Windows Speech Recognition, even with limited features. I'm using it with a Blue Yeti mic on the Surface Pro 3, and find it highly accurate, and less CPU intensive than other options. There is no need for a headset.

                • Sign the installation.

                  What is a Microsoft app - even a Garage Project - doing installing as an unknown developer?

                      • How is this different to WSR?

                        Why not fix the existing broken product of Win Speech Recognition? WSR, Cortana, now Dictate? a *3rd* one? Really?

                          • This is a huge time saver. Typing distracts from idea creation.

                                  • Voice Training function is needed for better accuracy.

                                    To improve voice recognition accuracy, a function to launch into training Dictate to understand a persons voice is an important feature to add, or this will look like a massive failure.
