wow. Was about to put a bullet through Illustrator. I have never had so many issues with Illustrator and a new computer. Turned off dictation - a feature I also use a lot and it finally worked again. Super slow and crazy glitchy. Glad some-one posted a fix. Would be great to have this working or at least a setting pithing Illustrator to fix issue.
