Mousegrid

Updated: 10/11/2017 by Computer Hope

The Microsoft Windows Speech Recognition program uses a mousegrid feature that allows you to select where you would like to click using your voice. For example, after saying "mousegrid," a grid overlays the window similar to the picture shown below.

To direct the mouse where you want to click you say the number of the area you want to click. For example, if we wanted to click on the Computer Hope logo towards the top of the screen we could start by saying, "1" since the logo is in box 1. The Speech Recognition program would then give a smaller grid in that section. To refine exactly where we wanted to click we would then have to say what section of the grid to drill down to the next grid until it is exact enough to where we want to click. In our example to click on the logo we would say: "mousegrid", "1", "3", "7", "6", and then "click" to click on the logo.
