New voice dictation-focused updates are coming to popular Microsoft 365 apps. These updates will make the tools even more engaging.
The Office Dictation feature, which enables users to dictate documents, emails, and more using their voice, has received many new entries in the official Microsoft 365 roadmap.
There’s a new look, new graphics, and increased features in the works for the service, which should make dictation a more important part of your workday.
Microsoft 365’s voice dictation
Word and Outlook will be the first to gain the new Office Dictation feature, which will have its own entry on the product roadmap.
New aesthetics, responsive design, and a smaller design get the Office dictation toolbar out of the way of what really matters: your text! Without going into much depth, the new upgrade’s description states.
While this may imply an improved service, it should also mean a better method for people to dictate emails, Word documents, and reminders while they’re on the road.
However, because of the July 2022 public release date, it seems the upgrade will be available shortly.
This functionality will be accessible to all Office users, regardless of platform, throughout the globe when it launches.
Microsoft Office’s enhanced dictation has long been a top priority for the corporation, and this announcement marks the latest step forward in that direction.
Microsoft promised big updates to Word and Outlook in February 2021, including a filter for profanity and automated punctuation.
After this release, Microsoft Dictate was expanded to cover a larger range of languages, and Outlook users were able to dictate email messages, calendar appointments, and meeting material in a separate announcement later in the year.
