I want to be able to say something like, "Start Dictation," to turn on OS X's Dictation feature, instead of having to double-click the fn key.
In System Preferences -> Accessibility -> Dictation, there is an option to "Enable the dictation keyword phrase." Here is a screenshot of this menu:
I have enabled this option and tried various phrases and the dictation has not been turned on once.
I'm not sure if this is related, but I have installed the "Enhanced Dictation" data:
Within the "Dictation Commands" menu, I have all "System" commands enabled, including the "Start Dictation" command. Screenshot:
Incidentally, the "Stop Dictation" command works perfectly.
Has anyone managed to Start Dictation by voice command?
