How do I use Dictate in PowerPoint?


Using Dictate in PowerPoint is a bit different from using it in Word. In PowerPoint, you will see the same Dictate button, below. However, once you click on the Dictate button you will still need to click into the slide anywhere you wish to enter text. Once you click into a text box, you can then speak and Dictate will type for you. 

Check out the link below to Microsoft's official guide to using Dictate in PowerPoint.
