speech API. No more speech training! Click Enter, start speaking, and click
Enter again when you finish speaking. Check the text as it takes shape in
the text box – you’ll find that much less editing is required. This upgrade
is only available for Windows 8 and Windows 10 ( because Windows 7 doesn’t
support websockets which is required by the cloud-based speech recognition,
sorry!). More background here
