Mac OSX - Dictation

One of the most useful features of Mac OSX is the ability to speak to your Mac and have it translated into text. This document is a basic overview of that functionality.


1. Open the System Preferences application.

2. Click on Dication & Speech.

3. In this window you can :

  • Choose the audio input
  • Toggle dictation on or off
  • Enable Enhanced Dictation
  • Choose the language
  • Choose the shortcut to use dictation.

4. In any place you would normally place text, you can now enter the shortcut and dictation will engage.
