Dictation, Speech-to-Text, and Speech Recognition Software

Dictation, also known as speech-to-text or speech recognition, is available without additional cost in many of the platforms provided at Mines. Dictation software can be helpful for anyone who needs a hands-free way to generate text or control their device.

Dictation can also be used as assistive technology for people with physical disabilities or injuries who cannot use a keyboard, and for people with cognitive or learning disabilities who use speech instead of typing or writing.

Voice to text software available with your Mines email address

Operating Systems

Windows and MacOS operating systems have built-in voice recognition and speech-to-text functionality that lets you type or navigate your device using your voice.
