How can I get windows speech recognition to type w

As I have already stated in a previous thread I have just upgraded my computer from windows XP to vista. Now ever since the beta’s were made public I have since then been a fan of the integrated speech recognition as not only does it enable me to complete certain tasks with my voice but it also proves that I don’t have to use my hands to use the computer.
Anyway I have mastered the skill of opening and closing applications with the recognition. However when I opened a certain type of web page such as google or youtube I don’t seem to have the ability to enter text in search boxes by saying the words aloud and having them entered automatically on the other hand when I speak words in applications such as Microsoft word it will dictate what I am saying and also by all means it should work when I dictate words in two A windows live messenger window.
Anyway what I am trying to ask is, does anybody know how I can use the windows vista Speech recognition not only to open and close application windows but to enter text into web pages and windows live message dialogue boxes.
I am sure that somebody will be able to help me with this issue and I am sure we will all one day be able to use speech recognition to complete a hard day’s tasks.

The reason may be that the search field doesn't have focus. I have to press Tab before I can type. If you can tell your computer to press the tab key it should work.
