What about people that have speech problems or hearing impaired they wouldn't be able to talk to Cortana? They can still type some stuff in. Is Microsoft going to have some type of captioning?
I don't speak that well myself.
I have issue without Cortana
Insider preview- Cortana was able understand me a little
First Release to public Cortana couldn't even hear me.
Threshold release haven't tested yet.
Let say we have company over and I want to pay a bill, I sure wouldn't want to speak out my password. Is Nadella in a dream world? What if you live in apartment with thin walls, do you want you neighbor to here you taking to your device?
In my opinion, I really don't think Cortana could do all the stuff you do when you are on line. Like these forums forum example.
What if you want to stay up late and get on the internet, speaking would disturb the other person in your household.
If I have to speak to a computer to use it, that will be the day I stop using computers.
I don't use Cortana on my PC because it (she?) told me that I have to set up a Microsoft account. I will re-consider when that requirement is done away with. Hopefully we'll be able to change the name... I'd like to be able to use my wife's name. "Hello Deb!"
Apple and Google have had similar apps out for several years but still haven't diminished regular browser use. I can't see Microsofts apps having any significant effect either. Interesting toys, but time will tell. Dragon NaturallySpeaking has been around in some form for 15 years, yet most people still type things manually.
What about all kinds of corporate software that runs within a browser? Is Cortana going to replace that? Seriously, a lot of people are using computers for something more important than music, photos, and web search.
P.S. In fact, I have search and indexing disabled completely on my PC. What's there for Cortana to do? Will it calculate integrals for me?
I don't think so, no way MS another trip on the foot
Don't blame me though everything seems fine until MS takes the wrong path....
well maybe if they added extension and what not I would give it a try. idc about cortana or use it at all. I don't use it don't want Microsoft tracking me. i have already removed and turned off some much crap. and idc about drawing or writing on things i have a thinkpad and a desktop idc about touch and i hate it. if bb had apps i would still have a bb with a keyboard.
i will probably never use cortana tracking sending all that data no thank you
i've had a iphone for 4 or 5 years and still never use siri. find it annoying and useless. and since i turn half the crap off for location it doesnt work. plus with my accent it never hears me right. i dont need that nonsense
you don't need a microphone for Cortana you can ask a question by typing it into the box and she will tell you stuff.
I know that, I have cortana off and internet search result too that just annoying.
But I have no interest in it after all the data the sends to Microsoft.
I went to privacy and turned will pretty much everything off. removed 2 services DiagTrack and there was one other
Went into gpedit and turned off send telementry data and created a reg key to turn it off.
used ccleaner to removed all useless apps new,weather,camera, money pictures video new app, groove music messaging, etc... all the windows 10 forced useless apps.

Destroy Windows Spying - Windows spying removal tool
He even has the code posted as open source if anyone is worried about any harm being done to their system. Besides being able to disable Cortana, it automatically disables all spying and telemetry, adds all the appropriate blocking to your hosts file to prevent any MS eavesdropping, it also adds exceptions to Windows Firewall as well giving Microsoft 0 access to anything you do on your W10 machine. You can even delete all the metro apps you don't want with a click of the button. Great piece of software if you ask me
Have a look.
