Add a Dictate tool.

Issue #

Congratulations! I've just downloaded EWP and am about to explore it. Is there any way to add a dictation tool to it? e.g. Microsoft Dictate? There are a lot of student who use scribes but the free dictation tools are becoming better and better. I know that Dictate requires internet access, but I'm thinking it may be possibloe to whitelist the dictate server and blackjlist eveything else. Cheers

Resolution Summary

Microsoft Dictation works natively with EWP.  Makre sure you have an active internet connection and turn on "Online Speech Recognition" under the speech settings (Windows 10). Then press Windows key + H, click into the Main document window of EWP then click on the Mic icon on the dictation bar at the top of the screen. As soon as you start to talk it will write your spech into the EWP main document window.
