I'm dictating and text shows up in the screen, and then this stupid pop-up comes in and does the same thing, really slows me down. The pop-up is not only an distraction but slowing me down and make it harder to dictate
What pop-up are you referring to here? I see you have Voice In Plus on your account.
Can you record your screen (you can use Loom or any other tool) and share the video?
I was wrong: It turned out to be a Microsoft feature, associated with its dictation tool, that mysteriuously was turned on. It is no longer a problem. Thank you
