In addition to text and handwriting support, you may also be able to use speech to enter text. This feature depends on your device - speech input is a device-level feature.
Users can also input text via dictation (voice input) if the system has been configured to use speech-to-text (STT):
     −
# Click the Text tool [[File:I-text-editor-T.svg|25px|link=]], then click on an area of the canvas to insert text.
+
'''''In Windows 10'''''
# Verify that the cursor is active on the writing area.
+
* Search (Windows key + S) for ''Speech recognition'' and open ''Windows Speech Recognition''
# If the hardware supports it, click the microphone icon on the on-screen keyboard.
+
* If opening for the first time, you will have to set up speech recognition first.
# Start speaking/reading the text to insert.  
+
* Windows speech recognition opens in a small floating window displayed over other windows, including Whiteboard.
# Whiteboard inserts the text on the canvas. Users might need to correct the inserted text after the procedure.
+
* In Whiteboard, click the text tool and click the canvas. The cursor must be blinking for speech to input as text.
 +
* Speak your sentence and pause, after a short time the text will be entered.
