How to use voice control on MacBook
By default, macOS has a list of voice commands. To test the feature you can simply say “Show commands” or “Show me what I can say.” As Apple explains on its support page, “The list varies based on context, and you may discover variations not listed.”
There are certain basic things you can do with voice control. For instance, if you want to work on a document in Pages then say, “Open Pages.” Then create a new document: “Click New Document.” Then choose one of the letter templates: “Click Letter. Click Classic Letter.” Then save your document: ”Save document.”
Or if you want to send an email. Then you can say “Click New Message.”And then say address it “Amit Kumar” and a mail will be created.
Apple also gives you the option to create your own voice commands for a more customised voice control experience.
Does the voice control feature work smoothly?
Like with most voice-based tech, there are a few glitches like accent and you have to speak with great clarity but it is a nice feature to have and does make life simpler at times.
