I just bought a microphone to test built in mac speech. On the speech preference, I can choose which keyboard key to make mac to listen to my voice.

Is it possible to make my mac to listen continuously without pressing a key?

I know that I can make mac listen to me without a voice command (ex: mac, [command]), but i don't like it..


This is quoted directly from the Speech Recognition Settings preferences:

Listen only while key is pressed:

With Speakable Items turned on, you can also select this method by speaking the command “Turn on push-to-talk.

Listen continuously with keyword:

Use the “Keyword is” pop-up menu to change when you need to speak the keyword. Use the Keyword field to specify what the keyword is.
