        dictate function is possible using the Windows speech recognotion. BUT it has Nothing to do with CORTANA. A Connection would be cool

        Nothing that I have seen from Micrsosoft so far could convince me that Microsoft has any focus on providing voice recognition with relevance to business secenarios

        Our voices are powerful if the wrong people make a copy of your voice. Then you are giving permission to anyone to use it.

        You know how computers have cameras and sound (not the sound you use to listen to stuff, the sound that you use for like what you said: google voice search, etc.)?........

        Even if you put tape on there (even duct tape), that probably wouldn't do the trick because hackers can hear what your voice sounds like. Also, they can probably see you through the camera on your computer, even on electronics like an iphone or ipad.

        I'm highly suggesting that that's probably the reason (if they haven't) why they haven't done what you have told them.
