What's this all about :- I all ready have windows 10. They keep sending me this and yes I do get regular updates.

Feature Update to Windows 10, version 20H2.
Your version of windows 10 will stop receiving important quality updates soon. You can stay in support by updating to a new version of windows 10. When your ready for this update select "download and install".

Is it because I've deleted a lot of the windows 10 junk. Yes it works fine and has done for quite a while now.

Got me fooled,
Dan.

With the latest version of windows 10, there isn’t really such a thing as versions any more... it will just be a constantly updated windows 10... these feature packs are a part of that philosophy, moving forward.

These feature packs are important, so it’s in your best interests to install it to keep your system up to date...

Normally they get released once or twice a year, depending on what is happening...

It’s nothing to do with you deleting stuff...

If you are familiar with windows of old, you may have heard of a thing called a service pack... these are a similar concept.  A point in time update/version of windows 10.

Dragon dictate/Dragon Naturally Speaking, bloody amazing. Takes a little bit to train it. If you allow it access to your hard drive it will read all your pdf and doc files and build a vocabulary specific to your work. You can also buy an Australian englsh/accent version. Cons, it needs a really good mic, but you can buy a pack that includes one. My experience is a few years old now so I don't know how it plays with Office 365. Also users will find you need to change the way you compose your sentences, going back to the way you did it when handwriting, because the context specific word recognition works best a sentence at a time. It has a very very good number entry mode.

Microsoft just bought Dragon (sort of) so should work pretty well with Office365 pretty soon

Use Google Docs "Voice Typing" -- It's rather quick and accurate, nothing to install just use the Chrome Browser, going to Google Drive or Google Docs

For a quick Introduction It's easier to point to a Youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_Gj2HzEP20
