In this video, I'm going to show you how to set up to use speech recognition on Windows computers. I'm using Windows 8.1.
The first thing we're going to want to know is how to get to the speech recognition settings
Many people don't know that it's available on their Windows computer. It can come in very handy sometimes. Even if our hands are often tied up, we can still get some work done. For those who don't know, speech recognition is basically a way to control the computer using our voice. The fastest way is to go into the Search function, if we have Windows 8 and higher, and type in "speech".
It says, "Adjust the volume of the Microphone (2- Logitech USB Headset H340)"
It also says, "Read the following sentences aloud in a natural speaking voice", "Peter dictates to his computer. He prefers it to typing, and particularly prefers it to pen and paper." Now, click "Next".
The next message tells us, "Improve speech recognition accuracy - You can improve the computer's ability to recognize spoken words by allowing the computer to review documents and e-mail in your search index
The computer will learn words and phrases to better understand you when you speak."
