Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Dictation & Speech.

I'm sure it used to be there, I've set it up in the past, but now I have Sierra, I cannot find it. Apple - system preferences - View gives me this list:

and I can't see dictation there. I looked under Accessibility, and there is a dictation feature there, but this is all it says:

and that looks different. I looked under Siri, and that has settings for speech output accent (it's a really awful accent, too, I can hear the quantisation, not enough bits) but not for dictation. I looked under Sound, and it's not there.

Where is Dictation and Speech Preference on Sierra, please?


It's moved to the keyboard settings. Apple - System Preferences - Keyboard - Dictation.

I used the Search feature in System Preferences to find it. I didn't even know there was a search feature...


Look the picture

As you can see the speech is in Accessibility, is the fifth option in the menu
