Is it possible to use macOS dictation to press the enter button (I want to select an item not start a new line)? Is it possible to press the command or function buttons using dictation?


You can use ‘press return key’ or ‘enter that’.

  • Does this work for any key such as the command or function keys? – ChemDev Jun 22 '17 at 22:57
  • @Chem No, see the list of commands available from the Accessibility preference pane, under the Dictation section, shown in my screenshot. – grg Jun 22 '17 at 23:08
  • CN you add your own commands? – ChemDev Jun 22 '17 at 23:11
  • @Chem Yes, but not for modifier keys only, so you can make a dictation command which presses ⇧⌘4 for example, but not one which presses ⇧⌘ only. Click the + button to add a command. – grg Jun 22 '17 at 23:12
