Triggering Dictation via Assigned Trigger


Can someone point me in the right direction to trigger dictation when in a text entry field?

So far I've tried creating a trigger (using the scroll wheel click on my mouse) that activates (within HD-System Library-Input Methods), but unfortunately that did not work.

Would be super grateful for any input on this.

Hey @Jarett,

Look at your keyboard preferences.

This is on Sierra:


Thanks @ccstone! I don't know how I didn't realize that... Whoops. :grimacing:

Hi @Jarett, here is my KM macro to enable and disable the dictation function under macOS Catalina.

Since I use a german macOS, you would have to change the marked entries accordingly:
