    How to Use Dictation with Touch Keyboard in Windows 10


    You can use Dictation to convert spoken words into text anywhere on your PC with Windows 10. Dictation uses speech recognition, which is built into Windows 10, so there is nothing you need to download and install to use it.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 16215, a microphone button has been added to the touch keyboard so you can now use dictation to input text with your voice into a text field.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18298, Microsoft updated the timeout period when dictating (WIN+H) to be from 5 seconds to 10 seconds, to give you a bit more time to think about what you want to say. If you’d like to stop the dictation before then, just say “Stop dictating” or press WIN+H (same as in previous builds).
