Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) HEFFX This Weeks Highlights
Microsoft is using Cortana’s speech recognition smarts to bring dictation to the company’s Office suite. The new app is simply named Dictate, and it’s the latest project to come from Microsoft Garage, which is the company’s experimental software outfit.
Dictate is more of an add-on than app since you really need Office to even use it. But once you install it, you’ll be able to talk aloud in Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint and have your words automatically transcribed into the selected text field.
20 languages are supported for voice-to-text, and Dictate also supports “real-time text translation” for up to 60 languages.
“If we’re going to be able to create magical experiences with software, then the hardware will be the thing that people buy to go experience that,” Microsoft corporate VP of devices Panos Panay told TIME during a recent interview.
We were discussing his company’s decision to release its first true laptop after years of selling hybrid computers, namely the Surface Laptop, which began shipping on June 15. “And [when] those two things work perfectly together in a seamless way, that brings elegance out,” he added.
