Design Corner: Using Office's Speech and Handwriting Recognition Tools

Using Office's new speech and handwriting recognition tools in PowerPoint can increase your productivity, but these new features are most effective when combined with the more traditional keyboard and mouse. For example, open PowerPoint, click Voice Command on the Language bar, and then say the verbal commands “file, new” to open the New Presentation task pane. From there, say “new file” to create a new presentation. Say “design” to open the Slide design task pane and apply a design template. Switch to Dictation mode and then dictate a title and subtitle. You can add a new slide by saying “new slide” and, if you choose a bulleted list, you can dictate each bullet followed by “new line.” Finally, say “save” to open the Save As dialog box and then say “save” again to save your presentation in progress.
