DictationSwitcher helps you with your daily dictation tasks.

Due to changes in the underlying system, DictationSwitcher no longer works on current versions of macOS and is no longer offered for download. Sorry!

OS X Mountain Lion has a useful new feature: Dictation. However, if you write a lot in different languages, switching between them is quite tedious, because the setting is buried in System Preferences.

DictationSwitcher is a little utility that sits in your Mac’s menu bar and makes using Dictation even easier. Its main functions:

Quick language switch Quickly switch between dictation languages, without the need of going through System Preferences.

Global Hot Key Use the global hot key (set by you) to quickly switch between two predefined languages.

Turn Dictation on/off Deactivate Dictation when you don’t need it and activate it with a click.

DictationSwitcher is Developer ID signed and requires OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion).
Note: DictationSwitcher is not working with OS X 10.10 or higher.
