Microsoft Launches Dictate AI-Enabled Add-on for Office

Story :

Microsoft on June 20 released Dictate, a new voice input add-in for Office that works with the Windows versions of Outlook, Word and PowerPoint.

"The plugin enables transcribing voice in more than 20 languages and also supports real-time text translation of up to 60 languages. Spoken commands give users the ability to create new lines, delete, add punctuation and more to format the text," stated Microsoft in a June 20 announcement.

In a YouTube video from Microsoft, the add-in can be seen converting spoken text, including a famous and exceptionally convoluted word, into text for a Word document, PowerPoint slide and the body of an Outlook email. It also supports a number of punctuation and editing commands, including "new line" and "delete."

Dictate is available now and requires that users run the Windows (8.1 or later) 64-bit versions of the Outlook, Word and PowerPoint (Office 2013 or later). Microsoft also recommends having .NET Framework 4.5 or later installed.
