Part IV: Going Beyond the Basics > Using Excel’s Speech and Handwriting Recogni...

Chapter 15. Using Excel’s Speech and Handwriting Recognition Features

In this chapter

  • Setting up your computer to “hear” and recognize your voice.

  • Installing Excel’s speech recognition feature.

  • Training Excel to understand your spoken words and commands.

  • “Typing” entries by speaking into a microphone.

  • Handwriting entries instead of typing them.

If you’re tired of data entry, you will be happy to hear that Excel recognizes voice commands and can take dictation. Instead of meandering through Excel’s menus and dialog boxes to enter a command, you simply tell Excel what to do. Do you want this worksheet printed? Say, “File, print, worksheet, okay,” and your printer prints the worksheet. Do you need to transfer data from a printout to a worksheet? Then read the entries from the printout into a microphone and have Excel “type” them for you. In this chapter, you learn how to install and set up the speech and handwriting recognition features and use them to enter data into your Excel worksheets.
