  1. Select VMware Fusion > Preferences and click Keyboard & Mouse.
  2. Select a profile to use from the Keyboard & Mouse Profile drop-down menu.
  3. Click Mac Host Shortcuts to go to the Mac Host Shortcuts pane.
  4. Make note of how your virtual machine maps the Command key to the Windows key.
  5. Assign a hot key to start dictation in the virtual machine.
