Voice recognition with Outlook working

Voice RecognitionInstalled Outlook on Stealth today, and activated the Windows 7 Speech recognition.

Everything is working with voice commands i.e. say “Start, Outlook” and you have it hands free. Then you can say “Press Down” to scroll through the messages, “Press Enter” to open them, “Reply” and start dictating, “Send”, “Close window”, etc.

After you’ve got your microphone and voice profile set up, you can use Speech Recognition to do the following:

  • Control your computer. Speech Recognition listens and responds to your spoken commands. You can use Speech Recognition to run programs and interact with Windows. For more information about the commands you can use with Speech Recognition, see Common commands in Speech Recognition.
  • Dictate and edit text. You can use Speech Recognition to dictate words into word-processing programs or to fill out online forms in a web browser. You can also use Speech Recognition to edit text on your computer. For more information about dictating text, see Dictate text using Speech Recognition.

For anybody who hasn’t tried the Windows 7 Speech recognition yet, it just needs to be turned on and configured for the microphone. It is blazing fast and accurate.
