Accessibility Turn On or Off Auto Punctuation for Voice Typing in Windows 11

  • Staff

This tutorial will show you how to to turn on or off auto punctuation for voice typing for your account in Windows 11.

Voice typing allows you to enter text on your PC by speaking.

You can use voice typing commands to manually insert punctuation marks.

If you like, you can turn on Auto punctuation to have voice typing automatically insert punctuation marks.

Starting with Windows 11 build 25300, the change to sync voice typing settings, Automatic punctuation and Voice typing launcher, across all devices signed in using the same Microsoft account is now available to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. You can toggle this feature via Settings > Accounts > Windows backup > Remember my preferences > Accessibility. This currently only works with Microsoft accounts today with AAD support coming later.

Here's How:

1 Start voice typing (Win+H).

2 Click/tap on the Settings (gear) button on the voice typing menu. (see screenshot below)


3 Turn On or Off (default) Auto punctuation for what you want, and click/tap on the Settings (gear) button to close voice typing settings. (see screenshot below)


That's it,
Shawn Brink

I find it works better without auto punctuation, otherwise it becomes a bit of a mess.
