Unable to find dictation in word

Copper Contributor


I was using word's dictation feature for past few days but suddenly it disappeared from the home tab yesterday. I have seen multiple videos that is showing to enable intelligent services. But there's no intelligent services option in the option menu.

Then I tried to disable the background intelligent services. But still no that didn't work.

Hi, there is no Voice feature in the Home tab. I followed the above steps but didn't find voice.
