I use Excel preferably more than Word for note: easier to put screen shots where I want (infinite 'page' size), use multiple sheets to structure my notes.

I use a lot & Love Word 365 Dictation, why can't / how can I use Office 365 Dictation even for text in Excel?

Note that the Dictate feature of Win10 is much worse, has no grammar correction, gets a lot of misspelled words, not as good.

 

Please make it available in Excel too.

Hi @DavideAvq,

 

This is a great idea to add to Microsoft Excel User Voice, however you can use the speech recognition feature available in windows to enter/delete the data, activate the speech recognition speak the numbers/text you wish to enter and once done click on insert.

Hallo @DavideAvq, maybe you should try Speech4Excel. With this app you can enter data into an Excel spreadsheet, but it is not directly available in Excel.
There is a limited version in the app store so you can try it out. But they also offer a feature rich professional version.
It works pretty well for my use case. Here is the link to the pro version: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/speech-for-excel-pro/9nwxnjh0dvjq?activetab=pivot:overviewtab and here to the free one https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/speech-for-excel/9pjfhnwdtvcb?activetab=pivot:overviewtab
I hope this is helpful for you. But of ourse it would be better if MS enables speech recognition in Excel.
