    Cortana is essentially a search tool. It's a bit of a toy (my personal opinion!) which attempts (sometimes) to give a slightly intelligent answer to a very limited range and format of questions, otherwise simply opening your browser and launching a search.

    It can recognise speech as well.

    It can also search your indexed files and folders.

    It also gives some sometimes amusing answers set up by MS to silly questions.

    So no, it's not a word processor, nor is it an email client.

    If you're worried about the age of your office suite, I wouldn't particularly, unless there's a particular document type you need which it doesn't support. You can always use one of the free office suites, or one of the many free word processors if you prefer.

    I almost never prepare text for emails in a separate word processor, unless it's to be attached as a document.

    Hope that helps.

    No, it's a search tool. Speech recognition here in this context is a gimmick. As in 'Hey Cortana, what's the time?'

    Consider the built-in speech recognition (which has been in Windows a while- at least since '7) and use that with a word processor.

    Hello, sorry to hear Italian isn't an available language for MS speech recognition. (It's actually hard to find that info.. links that lead nowhere in MS i.e. to a generic page that says nothing useful.

    Certainly the interface GUI language is a parent language, and the speech language must be the same or related.

    It seems odd Cortana should recognise Italian and yuo not be able to use that generally in speech recognition.

    As I said, Cortana is a search tool, so that's what you're speaking to. It does Bing (by default) searches. It doesn't format documents.

    You might have read sthg like this suggestion

    ops sorry cortana understands very well italian
    that's sad you know
    because in the past i used dragon natural speaking in italian , and it's even close to cortana!
    sometime it's comfortable speak and let the computer write
    in short if i want to speak and let a program write an email , i have to buy dragon natural speaking or a similar software
    software like dragon are not reliable
    it's sad because cortana really is impressive ,it (or she)recognizes the speach very well

    jarvis looks a great software but can't find anymore
    maybe this is the new evolution LINKS Artificial Intelligence Software
    thanks
