It simply has the text "fn" on it. Its location depends on the Mac model you have, or the keyboard model if it is a separate keyboard. Usually at the bottom left corner. On extended keyboards it could be with the home, end, page up, page down and delete keys above the arrows.
I watched the video and tried it with pages and it worked great, however when I finished speaking I clicked on the done area and it filled in what I said. I can not get it to work with the short cut and have to go into edit every time and select start dictation. Wanted to know why it won't work with the short cut method, but works great the other way?
Not sure. Check your preferences to make sure you are using the right shortcut.
I think you made a mistake, the iPod touch does not have Siri, I have an iPod touch 4º generation and i don´t see Siri. Am i right?
Keep the good work!
The iPhone 4S is the only device with Siri. The iPad will get it with iOS 6.
Another fantastic lesson Gary! Thanks so much!
Another excellent lesson, Thank you so much
Gary, thanks for this amazing useful service you provide.
I have been using dictation on my MacBook Pro retina since I got it and hardly ever have to type anymore. The voice recognition is amazingly good and I'm only using the computer's microphone. In fact the recognition is much better than the one I get at my hospital dictating medical reports with powerscribe.
How does one make ML dictation spell the word 'period'? Is the only way to actually spell it out?
I don't think there is a way. I get the feeling that dictation is really meant for short things like messages. It doesn't have the deep features you find in Dragon and other tools.
If I say the word period twice it seems to work, But it puts a second period in and I just edit that out by hand. It's clunky no doubt.
I have a pre-Lion Mac keyboard. What does the FN key look like?
