You have large number of pages to type in and you want to do so by speaking. Well, it’s possible through the SRE feature (Speech Recognition Engine). It also recognizes spoken Windows commands. 

Here is a guide to install the SRE feature. You will need Office XP, a microphone and a 400 MHz with 128 MB of RAM. You also need to check whether SRE is installed or not. So go to Control Panel>Sound, Speech and Audio Devices and click on the Speech icon. Select Speech Recognition tab and the language box will display ‘Microsoft English ASR Version 5 Engine’. If Speech Recognition Engine is not installed, follow the first step. Plug in the microphone and start.
