I am using the latest version of Mac OSX (‘Yosemite’ version 10.10.4) with LibreOffice v.184.108.40.206 (current version). Apple Dictation software (like, for example, Dragon’s ‘Naturally Speaking’ software) turns speech into typed text, and works with all the text editors, word-processing, email software I have installed on my system, and note also does work with the current version of OpenOffice. But, unfortunately, Dictation does not work with the current version of LibreOffice!
When I activate Dictation (by pressing the fn key twice), the small window showing Dictation’s microphone icon appears in all the apps I mentioned except LibreOffice (where nothing happens).
Has anyone had any luck using Dictation with LibreOffice?
It would we a real pity if Dictation cannot be used with LO because it works rather well as a speech-to-text app, and (as I have found) saves a lot of time entering data into Calc SHEETS and Base FORMS (which works effectively when using Dictation in OpenOffice). Any tips or comments from Dictation users much appreciated.
