I have a macbook pro and I do not find in VIEW, the DICTATION nad SPEECH OPTION To turn on
Have you enabled Dictation in the System Preferences?
Enable it, and select a keyboard shortcut.
Dictation will become active, when the cursor is inside a textfield in a document and you type the keyboard shortcut, e.g.function key twice.
Where exactly does this not work for you?
