Microsoft on Tuesday introduce the Dictate plugin and work on Cognitive Services algorithms which are useful for face recognition, language translation, and many other AL capabilities available to clients of Microsoft’s Azura cloud computing platform. Dictate is better and more accurate diction then we used or inbuilt built-in Windows speech-recognition app. Dictate, which is still in beta, and it is capable for good output.
Microsoft states that they started Dictate as a hackathon project, but quickly spread throughout the company and now it’s working on more than 1500, employees PC, and it’s in more than 40 countries. It has Microsoft Translate built in, it’s able to dictate in English and text have appears in more than 60 languages in real time.
After downloading and installing dictate, the interface will appear onscreen as a tab in the office ribbon. Some basic control includes in it as a stop/start button, a “result” box that displays the dictated text before it’s added to the open document and option to add punctuation manually. It is easy to add punctuation and control the app yourself, and it can control by voice just like a simple thing we can say “new line”, “stop dictation” and “enter”.
Dictate beta version available now , requires Window 8.1 or later and Office 2014 or later, and which corporate users where IT departments still use Window 7 won’t be able to use it. In future it’s possible that Microsoft will add Dictate’s features in office release, as we have seen Google’s rapidly improving translation and voice recognition capabilities, so Microsoft will work on compete with Google.
