Default You Have Voice Dictation

OK, it happened again. I was in Microsoft Word for some reason, and I noted there was a “Speech” item in the “Tools” menu. So I clicked. A screen popped up asking if I wanted to install the voice dictation part of the software. According to instruction, I inserted disk one of Microsoft Office. And now I have one more voice dictation program. Not bad at all really. That’s right, it only works with Microsoft Office programs. Hmm—does that include Internet Explorer. If so, then I suspect one could dictate right into the text box of this forum. But I don’t want to try to find out.

[How is it that with a Microsoft product, the installation is always a long continuous process? I mean I wait long enough for everything to download when I initially put in the disk. But then, as I try to use the product with its different features over the course of time, a screen always pops up saying this part of the program is not installed, and asking if I want to install it now. It usually means, if there is any way I can remember where I put the installation disk. However, this aspect of their software may actually be one of the more rational approaches to how they do things. The more I use Microsoft products, the more seriously I wonder about Bill Gate’s psychological state.]

Post dictated in Word.
