  7. 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

  10. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Issue: it seems to duplicate what I say.

    Not word for word. It will properly transform an entire sentence from text to speech but will then duplicate the entire sentence right after the first one. It's still saving me time after an arm injury. Nice work. Keep it up

  18. Voice Shortcuts

    I'd love to be able to use voice to run searches, format text, apply styles, select text/tables, navigating sections, inserting cross-references etc. The sky's the limit. I think you're really on to something here and would love to have the ability to both simplify my day-to-day work AND the work of those who use the templates/documents I develop.

    I'd think it could be activated with a single keyboard shortcut or button.

  19. it should be compatible to Indian accent

    Many of the old generation Indian professionals have been using the computers now a days for various reasons. They did not practice typing when they were young. Now they do not have time and patients to learn typing. This would be more helpful if the dictate can be compatible to Indian accent

  20. Dictate doesn't work on my Surface Pro 3 :(

    I'm running Win 8.1 & Office 2013 and tried Dictate using my internal microphone. I followed the instructions. I confirmed that the microphone is working. Dictate doesn't work in Outlook or Word no matter whatever I do. Help! Is there a manual or guide or anything for Dictate???

    A manual or guide for Dictate would be nice.
