Working with Edge

Full Text Control is not available with Edge. You cannot click Web page controls by voice. However, you can still dictate on Web pages using the Dictation Box. You can also use Natural Language (NLP) Commands.

For more information, see About the Dictation Box and About Natural Language Commands.

To open Edge:

Say "Open Microsoft Edge".

To open a Web page:

  1. Say "Press Alt d".

    The cursor moves to the Address field.

  2. Do one of the following:
    • Dictate the Web address directly in the Address field. Use this option if you don't need Full Text Control.

      For more information, see Dictating email addresses and web addresses.
