Use Speech Recognition to operate windows and programs in Windows 7

You can use your voice to work with windows and programs. Usually, you can just say the command that you want to perform. For example, to minimize all open windows, you can say "Show Desktop." To see the System Properties dialog box, you can say "Right-click Computer," and then say "Click Properties."

To open Windows Speech Recognition:

  • Click on the Start button, then click on Control Panel.
  • Click on Ease of Access
  • click on Speech Recognition.
