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, 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 Windows Speech Recognition program would then give a smaller grid in that section. To refine exactly where we want to click, we would then have to say what section of the grid, and any subsections, until the precise click location is defined. In our example, to click on the logo, we would say: "mousegrid," "1," "3," "7," "6," and then "click."
