Yes there is. In Windows Speech Recognition, Ctrl+Windows key will toggle the microphone on and off. Also, Windows+Ctrl (the reverse) toggles between "on" and "sleep."

On my windows 10 laptop I do it with the + key on the right hand side of my keyboard.

+1 Russell,
Milton, that won't work with Windows Speech Recognition. What Russell said is right. Can we not confuse the matter (I'd even recommend deleting posts and look forward to deleting this one, too) . . .

 

Everyone else, what Russell said . . .

Originally posted by: PG LTU +1 Ag and Milton, none of that works with Windows Speech Recognition. 

 

Sorry, I did not notice that  the post was in the  Microsoft Windows Speech Recognition form.

 

My  wristwatch button can also be configured to turn on/off  the global microphone  via AutoHotKey.    I use that for Zoom  conferencing.

Long time lurker here!

You might try MicMute, available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/micmute/reviews/. It is a free utility which I have found works very well, for all speak related purposes. Although I use Dragon, it should work equally well for MS Speech Recognition. It also works well for me for Skype, Zoom, GtM etc. 


Using MicMute I remapped the right Ctrl key to be mic on/mic off. Total elapsed time from download to functioning was less than two minutes. Quick & easy & works with a single key.

Of course, YMMV.
