This tutorial will show you how to to turn on or off voice typing launcher for your account in Windows 11.
In Windows 11, dictation has been updated and renamed as voice typing. Like dictation, voice typing uses online speech recognition technologies to power its speech-to-text transcription service. You no longer need to turn on the Online Speech recognition setting to use voice typing.
Voice typing allows you to enter text on your PC by speaking.
The voice typing launcher lets you quickly access voice typing when your cursor is in a text box.
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.
