How to use Speech Recognition on Windows 11
Speech Recognition uses clear and easy-to-remember commands. For example, if you say “Start” which is a command that opens the Start menu, while saying “Show Desktop” will minimize everything on the screen.
If Speech Recognition is having issue understanding your voice, you can always use the Show numbers command as everything on the screen has a number. Then say the number and speak OK to execute the command. Here are some common tasks that will get you started with Speech Recognition:
Starting Speech Recognition
To launch the experience, just open the Start menu, search for Windows Speech Recognition, and select the top result.
Turning on and off
To start using the feature, click the microphone button or say Start listening depending on your configuration. In the same way, you can turn it off by saying Stop listening or clicking the microphone button.
Some of the most frequent commands you’ll use include:
Open — Launches an app when saying “Open” followed by the name of the app. For example, “Open Mail,” or “Open Firefox.”
Switch to — Jumps to another running app when saying “Switch to” followed by the name of the app. For example, “Switch to Microsoft Edge.”
Control window in focus — You can use the commands “Minimize,” “Maximize,” and “Restore” to control an active window.
Scroll — Allows you to scroll in a page. Simply use the command “Scroll down” or “Scroll up,” “Scroll left” or “Scroll right.” It’s also possible to specify long scrolls. For example, you can try: “Scroll down two pages.”
Close app — Terminates an application by saying “Close” followed by the name of the running application. For example, “Close Word.”
Clicks — Inside an application, you can use the “Click” command followed by the name of the element to perform a click. For example, in Word, you can say “Click Layout,” and Speech Recognition will open the Layout tab. In the same way, you can use “Double-click” or “Right-click” commands to perform those actions.
Press — This command lets you execute shortcuts. For example, you can say “Press Windows A” to open Action Center.
Speech Recognition is a powerful tool for someone who needs to command their PC using only voice.
