I am relatively new to Mac and therefore apologise if this is a question of ignorance. I am finding it difficult to understand how Keychain saves a password and then uses it to allow me to login without entering the password. I seem to have read somewhere that the system asked whether I want to save the password but that does not seem to be happening in my case. I have been setting up the password individually and some seem to work and others do not. For example Mac speech Dictate always requires me to login, despite the fact that I have meticulously entered this on to Keychain.

Can somebody please help me with this process as I'm sure that is something simple that I'm failing to do. Maybe it is something in the preferences that I have not fully understood and is prevented from doing what I wanted to do, which is simply to save me the time of remembering and putting in passwords!
