Macos Big sur 11.1: when using voice dictation in combination with Indesign, in a new simple document, nothing else open in ID: when starting voice dictation , text cursor blinking and already inputting text, after a few words ID crashes. Tried it 3 times, ID crashes each time.
The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update of InDesign – version 19.0.
Please update to this version to get the fix.

Will someone please sort out the problem with indesign crashing when using dictation on the Mac. I am now on Big Sur and Indesign 2022 and the problem still exists. I am fed up with traditional designers quoting that text should be done outside of indesign. I am a successful author of ebooks which I design and publish myself and which sell in 75 countries but... I am dyslexic and although fast at typing not accurate due to my dyslexia. The dictation works superbly in Pages and at the moment I work in that and copy text over - also works in Word which also has grammerly running in the background and so has a better grammar check than indesign.... but it still crashes after about once sentence on indesign. You are doing thing such as changing the term Master to something else to be more "inclusive" how about making the program more friendly to those of us that have a different way of seeing language to allow us to work more easily.

Same here. Big sur it's a buggy ****. But I expected more from Adobe addressing this issue.
