So, how can you do that? Well, just keep reading this guide to get it done. Have a look.
Step 1: First, click on the Apple icon in the upper-left corner of your screen and choose System Preferences…
Step 2: Choose Keyboard, and then click on the Dictation tab.
Step 3: From here, uncheck the box for Use Enhanced Dictation.
Step 4: Now, press Command + Shift + G from the Finder on your Mac to bring up the Enter Path window. Just enter the following path:
Step 5: Click on Go and delete the folder located in the directory SpeechRecognitionCoreLanguages by right-clicking on it and choosing Move To Trash.
