Pro Tip: Enable Dictation on Mac

With Dictation, you can dictate text anywhere you can type it. Turn it on in Keyboard settings—your dictated utterances are sent to Apple to process your requests. A feedback window gauges your speaking volume and provides basic dictation controls.

Turn on Dictation

  • On your Mac, click the Apple menu > System Settings, then click Keyboard in the sidebar

  • Click Dictation on the right, then turn it on

  • If a prompt appears, click Enable

  • If you're asked if you want to improve Siri and Dictation, do one of the following: Share audio recordings or Don't share audio recordings

  • To dictate using another language, click the Language pop-up menu, then choose a language and dialect
