How to use voice typing on Windows 11 OS
Voice typing feature on Windows 11 is powered by Azure speech services and uses online speech recognition technology.
Microsoft has introduced a new feature that allows Windows 11 PC users to generate text using just voice as an alternative to typing. According to the company, this feature is for those who are tired of typing and is also said to boost productivity. It can also be considered as an accessibility feature, for those, who can’t use a keyboard due to physical disability.
According to the company, the voice typing feature on Windows 11 is powered by Azure speech services and uses online speech recognition technology to convert voice into text in real time. Note that to use this service, the device has to be connected to the internet and should also have a working microphone.
How to enable voice typing on Windows 11?
Simply press the Windows + H keys anywhere in the operating system to access Microsoft speech services, which turn voice into text. There is also an option to enable a voice typing launcher, which automatically opens the service when you are in a text box.
Similarly, the voice typing feature on Windows 11 also offers automatic punctuation. Again, this feature has to be enabled manually. If your device has multiple microphones, including external ones, there is also an option to choose the microphone that you want to use for voice typing.
Moreover, you can contribute your voice clips to Microsoft to help them improve the feature. Note that this feature is not only available on computers running Windows 11, but it is also available for Windows 10 users.
