You probably know that you can now enable custom "dictation commands" in Accessablity and link commands to automator workflows etc.

But did you know that using dictation now stops the internal fans (of machines with fans) when you are talking so it can understand you better.

Couldn't that cause potential heating issues?

Yes, one more thing is here regarding Dictation feature. ‘Enhanced Dictation’ option automatically stops listening when you switch to another window. And for getting back to here, it requires either pressing Fn key or clicking on Done.
