Hey there! @Pamelahobbs12, Thanks for stopping by HP forums!
I understand you need to know how to talk to type on your stream notebook.
Don't worry I will try to help you out.
Are you using any particular application which does talk to type on your PC?
You don't need any special microphone to talk to type.
Please try the steps recommended below.
To dictate text
Open Speech Recognition by clicking the Start button The Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking Windows Speech Recognition.
Say "start listening" or click the Microphone button to start the listening mode.
Open the program you want to use or select the text box you want to dictate text into.
Say the text that you want dictate.
Let me know how it works.
Have a great day ahead! :)
