Dictate is an Office add-in for Word that converts speech to text (also includes Microsoft Translator).

Download Dictate

Install Dictate







When this installation finishes, this screen appears.







After you install Dictate, open  Word. You will see a new tab on the ribbon called Dictation. Select this tab, and start dictating text right away.

The application also includes a translator that we can use to make simple translations for example from English to Spanish when we have doubts about the meaning of a phrase.



The following is an introductory video to the main features of the application.

A good microphone and a quiet location are essential to getting speech recognition to work well.

My suggestion is that first make Word read a text (using READ ALOUD) so that you know how to pronounce the corresponding words and later you can practice your pronunciation using DICTATE.
