    you will see on your touchscreen keyboard there is a microphone button and if you use that microphone button, you will have the ability to type with your voice and i am using it right now. it's a bit hard to you because i cannot use capital letters when i needed to and sometimes it cannot understand what i am sayingi am not also able to use punctuations. it's not super reliable but it can be useful if you are too lazy to type .

    defender points out where you can find on your on screen keyboard the microphone button is .if you have an injury or you're just too lazy to type it can be useful for using forums or commencing in social network but you cannot rely on it when it comes to punctuation grammar and capitalization grammar.

    I tried typing with my voice, but I never used it again because it was slow and inaccurate. I can type 120 wpm normally, and when I use my voice, it really slows me down and makes a lot of annoying mistakes that I have to go back over and fix, which takes even more time. Even the touchscreen keyboard works better for me, as with enough practice, I have gotten fast enough on it to make using my voice not worth it.

    Hi. I have use the voice typing feature on my computer. I like the application of this in order to create document for my writing.
    Just adjusting to this as it takes awhile to use the feature.

    I only type with my voice when I'm speaking French, because there's a lot of words I know how to say but that I can't spell. I use it for school, but not really anything else. Other than that, I never use it because it's not very accurate and misses a lot of words when you say them. I honestly just end up getting frustrated and end up typing the words out on my own anyways because its taking too much time.

    No, I don't really like using the voice typing feature on my computer. I am concerned about how easy an error would be, whether autocorrect artificial intelligence or simply a spelling mistake. It's not very accurate, and you can miss some of the words as you speak them out loud. There is no real need to use Audio To Text when I can type over 90 words per minute. It's just occasionally, and I'll get RSI from typing constantly.

    No, when I type I don't use my voice. Sometimes when I use my voice it doesn't always hear me clearly and I also love typing by hand anyway so why not just do it by hand?

    Typing with my voice doesn't really work for me as it seldom understands me correctly and I don't like the lack of correct punctuation and capitalized letters. The only occasion where I might use voice typing if I really have to remain hands-free.

    I would be silly not to. Although tying with your voice does not always come out completely accurate, it's still a lot simpler than typing full-blown essays on a keyboard. With that being said, I do not use the voice to text method all the time because I do not want to lose the skill to type on a keyboard, as it is necessary for future employment. I do not mind using voice to text when my English teacher assigns me a never-ending assignment. Anyways, I completely recommend using this method, especially if time is a concern.
