Be like Scotty and Speak To Your Computer

Remember that scene in the movie Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home where the crew travels back in time to save the whales? They end up in San Francisco in the 1980s. Here Scotty tries to talk into a computer and is shocked to learn that people in the year 1986 still using keyboards to control their computers.

Are you like Scotty? Do you prefer talking into your mobile computer? It's very practical to dictate short text messages and to leave yourself a note with your smart phone.

Would you like to do the same using your Windows PC? No problem! Dictation in Windows is actually pretty easy and with a little practice it works quite well.

In Windows 10 look for the "Windows Speech Recognition" App or search for "Speech Recognition" in the Windows Search Box or click here.

You can dictate to your PC in English, French, German, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish. Sorry, no Klingon yet.

Hey Scotty, it gets better! Yes in the year 2017 we can give our computers voice commands.
