Command your laptop through your voice in Windows 7

Command your laptop through your voice in Windows 7-- Prashanta Prasad DevkotaDate: 02-Jul-2013I don't know about you guys, but I've always wished to give commands to my computer just by speaking to it. As Windows7 has replaced Windows XP, most people use it without even knowing that Windows 7 has speech recognition built into it. What this means for the average user is that you can speak to your computer and it will respond accordingly. Simply type 'speech' into the start menu and 'Windows Speech Recognition' should be highlighted. Run the program and if this is the first time you are running it, you will be paced through a tutorial that is very easy to follow.Just one warning though, the tutorial takes around 30 minutes to complete, but I can assure you that those 30 minutes are worth it for all the fun you will be having later on.Here are a few things that I've been doing:1. Move the mouse using my voice2. Launch various programs (like MS-Word, Excel, Firefox, Chrome, My Astrology Software etc) simply by saying their names. An example would be: "Start Firefox" and firefox would be started. Yes it is fun.3. I've always wanted a personal secretary and though I still can't afford one, it was pretty fun dictating to Microsoft Word. The accuracy amazed me but you will have to speak very clearly. Also it helps if you train the 'Speech Recognition' software to recognize your voice.4. Execute various menus inside any program.5. Open 'My Computer' and browse to any location simply by telling the computer to do so.6. Browse my Pictures collection and start slideshows by telling the computer to do soand so on....So as you can see, it is really fun and if you are using Windows 7, it is already built in.Things you will need1. A headphone with a microphone2. Windows 7CaveatsIt really helps with the accuracy of speech recognition if you train the program a few times. Also I would recommend completing the tutorial at least once.Other than a few issues, speech recognition works great and I had a blast using it. Have fun!
