    I can not get my speech recognition to type a message itself. I can use all
    the commands, like hide profile pictures, send a nudge, add a smile, I just
    cannot figure out how to send the text itself.

    Can someone please help??

    Hi Katherine,
    You didn't say what program you are trying to dictate to.
    Try using wordpad or notepad.
    I am using speech recognition to reply to this message in windows Internet

    The program name was in the title.. it's Live Messenger. I raised a post
    back at the start of February with exactly the same problem as katherine.
    Basically, Speech Recognition works perfectly with all functions of the
    program until you try to use it to 'type' directly into the message window.
    As soon as you try that, Speech recog fails.

    The only work around is to use notepad, type your message in there, then cut
    and switch to the messenger window and paste. Hardly the best method.. I've
    not found any way of permitting speech to work, so can only assume it's a
    'Feature' in the broad sense of the word.
