Dictate

Found under the Home Ribbon in Word, PowerPoint and OneNote online. Dictation lets you use speech-to-text to author content all you need is a microphone and a reliable internet connection. It’s a quick and easy way to get your thoughts out and is a great tool if you struggle with writing and would find it easier to dictate your ideas and work directly into your document to transform into text.

You can also change the dictation language with 20 to choose from. If English isn’t your first language you may find it easier to dictate in your preferred language and then translate it to English later using the Translate tool. In Word you can also access some settings including the ability to turn on Auto Punctuation to help you further, just turn Dictate on and select the setting icon.
