Windows Voice Recognition

The easiest way to operate your PC is with your hands whether you're navigating a touch screen, or using a mouse and keyboard. But for some people that's just not possible, especially when it comes to typing.
Maybe you broke your finger or you suffer from a repetitive strain injury that makes typing impossible. Or perhaps you simply want to get work done while running on a treadmill.
But just because you can't type doesn't mean you can't create documents. All you need is a microphone for your PC and Microsoft Word to take the stress off your hands and start using your voice.
Here's how.

Commanding voice

Get started with speech recognition via the Windows Control Panel.

To start in Windows 8.1, open the Control Panel and type speech into the Control Panel search box, then select Start Speech Recognition from the search results.
Next, Windows will take you through a quick set-up to make sure your PC is ready for accepting speech. As I mentioned earlier, your best bet is to use a USB headset, although desktop microphones and other input devices will also work.
Simply follow the instructions as you click through the set-up wizard. You'll be asked to read a few sentences to test your system, and whether you want to allow Windows to scan your documents and stored e-mail to improve speech recognition.

You'll also be asked whether you want to use manual or voice activation mode. If you want to turn on speech recognition by clicking a button with your mouse or keyboard, then choose manual activation mode. If you'd rather use the phrase "start listening" to turn on speech recognition then choose voice activation mode.
In both cases, you can turn off speech recognition by saying "stop listening."
After that, you're pretty much set. You can take an online tutorial to learn how to use speech recognition (I didn't bother), or you can just dive in and start dictating.
If you opt for the more adventurous course, I recommend you bookmark this Microsoft help page that includes several lists of how you can use speech recognition with your PC.

Dictating text

Speech Recognition is system wide and can be used for more than just dictation.

Once you're ready to go, you'll see a small window at the top of your screen with a microphone icon and a small window that says Listening.
Open Word normally or just say "Open Word" into your microphone. Now, dictating text is just as simple as talking into your microphone. Whenever you need to insert a punctuation mark just say the mark's name, such as "period," "comma," or "question mark.""
To learn how to navigate your document with new lines, paragraphs and so on, check out the dictation section Microsoft's help page.
It may take some getting used to, and at first speech recognition may not be as accurate as you'd like, but over time it will improve. The pace of dictation will also be a hurdle if you were a particularly fast typist.
As for the apps you can use with Dictation, you'll have no problem with Microsoft apps like Word or Notepad. But some third-party apps may not work at all. In my tests, for example, text editors like Sublime Text 2 and GitHub's Atom didn't work, but Notepad++ did.

More than just dictation

Once you've got dictation down, you can use the built-in speech recognition feature in Windows for all kinds of tasks such as to open and close apps, navigate menus, control windows, scroll, and even right-click. Again, Microsoft's help pages can help you expand your voice command chops.

Download Windows Speech Recognition Macros Software. (CLICK HERE)

After Installing, you will need to configure it as per your needs. We'll use the Windows Speech Macros.You must already have downloaded this software from the given link and installed it.It is recommended to put its shortcuts in two places, one in the desktop and other in the start-up folder, allowing it to the second your computer starts.Here is how to set up the commands :

Double Click The Macros Icon, and when the window pops up asking "What should the macro do?" Then click "Advanced." For those of you familiar with creating websites, this should be a welcome site. WSRM uses XML for commands... which makes creating custom commands relatively simple and fun. For those of you who aren't aware of XML, it's still easy. Here is what you need to learn.

<speechMacros> - This is the starting Tag, it just tells the computer that this XML file uses the Speech Macros to execute.

<command> - This is the command to be executed. Each command is basically one action... in most cases you will only need one, but for some automations you'll want to include more than one. You'll see an example of this later.

<listenFor></listenFor> - This tells the computer what word or phrase to listen for in order to do an action. Notice that there is a closing tag (</listenFor>), this tells the XML that this spot in the code is where to stop doing whatever function... in this case stop listening for a word or phrase once the computer hears it.

</command> - The closing tag for the "Command" tag... again, in XML every tag will have an opening/closing tag and what happens between the two is how it knows what to execute. In this case it knows that the command is finished once the word/phrase has been detected.

</speechMacros> - This is the closing tag of the first tag!

<listenfor> tags will be used by your computer to identify what they have to listen for to execute any action

If you want your computer to greet you when you say "Wake Up JARVIS", then use the below macros
<listenFor>Wake Up Jarvis</listenFor>
<speak>Systems Online, Database Check, Good Morning Sir !</speak>
I love this one the most!

An Speech Macro For Getting The Weather :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
<listenFor>Pull up the weather in [CityName]</listenFor>
<run command="http://www.weather.com/weather/local/{[CityName.zipCode]}"/>
<listenFor>Is it cold in [CityName]?</listenFor>
<speak>Let me check... just a moment.</speak>
<script language="JScript">
<var xml_doc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
<xml_doc.async = false;
<var titles = xml_doc.getElementsByTagName("title");
<var descriptions = xml_doc.getElementsByTagName("description");
<Application.Speak(titles.item(2).text + " in {[*CityName]}");
<listenForList name="CityName" propname="zipCode">
<item propval="65201">Columbia</item>
<item propval="37201">Nashville</item>

A Macro To Restart The Computer :
You will just have to say "Nuke It!" and the computer will restart :

<listenFor>Nuke it</listenFor>
<speak>Rebooting The System.</speak>
<run command="C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe" params="-r -t 00"/>

Macro To Shut Down The Computer :
You will have to say "Goodbye Jarvis" And the Pc Will Shut Down :

<listenFor>GoodBye Jarvis !</listenFor>
<speak>Getting Offline,Bye Sir</speak>
<run command="C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe" params="-s -t 00"/>
