How to Enable “Type to Siri” on Mac in macOS Mojave or High Sierra

At times, I find it a bit inconvenient to speak commands! Thankfully, there is an option to enable Type to Siri both in macOS Mojave or High Sierra on Mac.

Imagine a situation when you are working on your Mac in a library. Suddenly, an interesting question comes to your mind, and you wish to take the help of Siri. Wouldn’t you feel a bit inconvenient to speak your query to the virtual assistant; considering others would get disturbed by your conversation? Yes, you would. But now you will no longer have to face such embarrassment as you can use Type to Siri in macOS Mojave or High Sierra on your Mac.

So, the next time you find it a bit inconvenient to speak any command to Siri, do take advantage of this useful feature. Speaking the truth; the written command works a bit more effectively than the spoken ones as the virtual assistant doesn’t have to put much effort to understand it. It can be very helpful not just for the differently-abled people but also for those who are not the native speakers of English.
