Microsoft Garage , a Microsoft project that transforms its employees’ ideas into real projects, launched a new application that allows users to write in Office applications through dictation and typing.

Microsoft said on the new application’s Web site, called Dictate , that it is a plug-in for Word, PowerPoint and Outlook applications that allows users to write hands-free, using speech recognition technology to convert speech to text.

The DeciteT application now supports more than 20 languages, with simultaneous interpretation into 60 languages, adding support for voice commands, such as New Line, Stop dictation, Enter to give users more control.

The application also supports two different numbering modes, automatic and manual for the English language, as well as an optical response that shows the user that dictation of speech is underway.

It is noteworthy that the application of “DeciteT” uses a very sophisticated speech recognition technology, along with the artificial intelligence technology adopted by Microsoft in its digital assistance Cortana, and the interface of speech on the search engine Bing, and Microsoft Translator.
