Introducing Voice Dictation and Voice Commands

Some of the most exciting new features in Word 2002 (and the entire Office XP suite) are voice dictation and voice-activated commands. If your computer is outfitted with a sound card, speakers, and a microphone (or a microphone with an earphone headset), you can dictate information into your Word documents. You also can use voice commands to activate the menu system in that application.

Before you can really take advantage of the Speech feature, you must provide it with some training so that it can more easily recognize your speech patterns and intonation. After the Speech feature is trained, you can effectively use it to dictate text entries or access various application commands without a keyboard or mouse.
