Microsoft Adds Microsoft Editor to Edge and Now Supports Voice Typing

Microsoft Edge Users will Soon be able to Set their Keyboards Aside and Search with Voice

Microsoft has integrated Microsoft Editor into its most recent developer channel release and it supports voice typing for the Edge browser…

Microsoft is about to make Edge a little more handy. Rather, more hands-off, because it’s built in Microsoft Editor to the browser, which supports voice typing. The new features are integrated into the latest developer channel build, meaning they’re quite likely to make their way through beta and out to stable, public release. The voice input is powered by Microsoft’s own Azure Speech services.

Microsoft Adds Microsoft Editor to Edge and Now Supports Voice Typing

Microsoft’s Azure Speech services tool has been available in Windows 10 for some time now, but this is the first time the technology has been added to Edge on Windows 11. IN order to use the new voice typing, it’s necessary to access it through the dev channel release and be connected to the internet. Of course, it also requires a microphone and is enabled by pressing the Windows logo key + H on a hardware keyboard, or by pressing the microphone key next to the spacebar on the touch keyboard.

Once the feature is activated, voice command will automatically start listening for speech. Just put the cursor in a text box and wait for the “Listening…” alert to sound and then start speaking. It works in English, Chinese, French, Spanish, German, Hindi and many more languages. Additionally, the update brings the company’s spelling, grammar and style checking assistant, to Edge.
