Understanding Speech and Handwriting Recognition

All Office applications include speech and handwriting recognition, sharing it with Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. Using speech recognition, you can dictate the content of PowerPoint slides or use voice commands to perform basic tasks such as formatting text. Speech recognition uses a speech recognition engine. Microsoft currently offers three engines: one in U.S. English, one in Japanese, and one in Simplified Chinese.

NOTE

If you're a native speaker of English from a country other than the United States (such as the U.K. or Australia) or if English is your second language, the speech recognition engine might not work as well for you because it's trained to recognize American accents.
