Dictate is an Office add-in that allows the user to convert speech to text while working in Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook. Unlike Microsoft’s Speech Recognition software, Dictate uses Cortana’s powerful speech recognition engine to carry out nearly flawless dictation.
You can download the add-in here. Once installed, open Word, PowerPoint, or Outlook. Next, press alt+D and then the letter S to start dictation. You can say “Stop Dictation”, to end the session.
You do have the option of dictating punctuation yourself, or letting Dictation do it for you. While in the Dictation tab on the Ribbon, choose either manual or automatic punctuation levels.
