Dictating Text

Dictating text in an Access database using Office speech recognition functions may be easier for some users than typing, but don't think that it is an entirely hands free operation. For example, you must manually click the Voice Command button when you want to format anything that has been input, and then click again on Dictation to resume inputting text. Additionally, the Dictation function is not going to be 100% accurate, so you will need to clean up mistakes (such as inputting the word Noir when you say or ) when they occur. Finally, although you can say punctuation marks, such as comma and period, to have them accurately reflected in the database, all periods are followed by double spaces (which may not be consistent with the formatting you want between sentences) and issues of capitalization remain as well.

Dictate Text


Display the Language bar, if necessary.


Click the Microphone button on the Language bar. The toolbar expands so that the Dictation button becomes available on the toolbar.


Click to position the insertion point inside the Access database where you want the dictated text to appear, and then begin speaking normally into your microphone. As you speak, the words will appear on the page.


When you have finished dictating your text, click the Microphone button again to make the speech recognition functions inactive.
