Just like in iOS 11, you can enable Type to Siri in macOS High Sierra. This is a feature that lets you type queries to Siri, just like you would a search engine. It’s useful for people who may feel awkward talking to their iPhone or Mac. It’s also helpful in certain situations where silence is a virtue, like in a library. Here’s how to turn in on in macOS.

Finding Type to Siri in System Preferences.

Does anyone know if it is improved? Siri dictation under Yosemite really leaves much to be desired!
