Speech Recognition context changes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for a way to use Vista's speech recognition software to dictate in web-based text editors (like this forum, for example). Dictating to notepad or wordpard works fine, but when I try dictate to any other editor the voice recognition software listens only for regular commands. I can put it in "typing" mode and dictate the keystrokes, but I'm looking for a way to dictate words. As a quick fix, I can use notepad and then copy&paste it into another editor, but there's got to be an easier way to do it.

    Similarly, is there any way to support some of the dictation commands while reading through webpages? For example, is there any way to set it up such that I can say "select A through B" to select sentences on a web page?
