Do you realize you can control your Windows Vista system with your voice? Of course you can! While I was aware of it, I must admit that I had forgotton about this particular functionality until reminded the other day by Lifehacker. They link to the Vista for Beginners (probably the vast majority of Vista users qualify) weblog, which walks you through setting up your system for voice recognition with advanced options. The blog entry goes through adding new speech profiles, managing those profiles, adding vocabularies, changing existing vocabularies, changing the language, working with speech dictionaries, audible cues and how to dictate in other applications. Lots of good information with screen shots that will enable you to turn your computer into a voice-recognizing, dictation-enabling, virtual secretary! Talk on!
