How to write dictation text with your voice in Windows 11

It is quite obvious that to enter text in any program, app or Web through your Windows 11 computer, you will have to use a physical or virtual keyboard.

However, this is not the only option since Windows 11 also allows you to enter text through voice or what is the same, write text in Windows 11 narrating with your own voice the words and phrases that will be written automatically.

Previously, to be able to write text by voice, you had to use third-party programs, however now Windows 11 incorporates a voice-writing tool. The voice typing tool is built into Windows 11 by default and is fully integrated with the operating system.

Although the Voice Typing feature is built into Windows 11 by default, this feature can be configured. But not only that, but by default there is only one way to open and access the Windows 11 Voice Typing tool and this is through a keyboard shortcut.

Although the Windows 11 voice typing or dictation tool has been created mainly for users with some type of disability, the truth is that it will also be the best tool for those who write a large number of words on a daily basis. Simplifying the function of this tool, we can say that it converts your voice into text. In this way we can enter text in any word processing application, browser or any other program just by using your voice.

That said, below, we show you in detail how to activate and use the Windows 11 voice typing tool:
