Use Microsoft Word?

All you need is a microphone and network connection to use dictation in Word. (It works with Word for Microsoft 365 on PC and Mac.)

  • Sign into Microsoft 365 on a mic-enabled device.
  • Open a new or existing document and go to Home > Dictate. Wait for the Dictate button to turn on and start listening. Speak clearly, and you’re all set.

Here are some helpful voice commands:

  • Insert punctuation by saying them explicitly, like “John exclamation point” for “John!” To insert a word that’s also punctuation, such as “comma” or “period,” say “literal comma” or “literal period.
  • New line” or “New paragraph” will start a new thought or section. Say “Go to” or “Go after” and a word to move the cursor before or after that word.
  • To correct the last thing you said, say “Correct that.
  • Select that” will select the last thing you said.
  • Say “Caps” and a word to capitalize the first letter of that word.
