    I am considering the purchase of a Lumia 920, and while testing the phone at the AT&T Store, I was unable to enter a web address by speech input, or dictate a note in OneNote. Is this possible with this phone?

    I didn't try it, but can speech be used with the Word and Excel apps?

    I am terrible at finger typing, so speech would be very helpful.

    Hey Michael
    In OneNote you can't dictate a note, but you can leave a 'voice memo' in it. With Word and Excel I didn't find any options for speech to text dictation.

    The two places in the OS where you can dictate are the messaging app and emails.

    Hope this helps!

    I use it mostly for text messages when I'm driving. It's really handy. You can even say something like "winky face" and it will insert a wink emoticon ;)
