Tired of talking

If, like me, you're a bad typist you can use windows dictation to speak what you want instead of typing. Here's how to set it up. It's really easy to do.
Use dictation to talk instead of type on your PC
Applies to: Windows 10

Use dictation to convert spoken words into text anywhere on your PC with Windows 10. Dictation uses speech recognition, which is built into Windows 10, so there's nothing you need to download and install to use it.

To start dictating, select a text field and press the Windows logo key  + H to open the dictation toolbar. Then say whatever’s on your mind.  To stop dictating at any time while you're dictating, say “Stop dictation.”

If you’re using a tablet or a touchscreen, tap the microphone  button on the touch keyboard to start dictating. Tap it again to stop dictation, or say "Stop dictation."
