What are Voice, Inking, and Typing Services?
For this question, Microsoft gives the following answer:
When you interact with your Windows device by speaking, writing (handwriting) or typing, Microsoft collects information from speech, writing and writing, including information about your calendar and people (also known as contacts), helping to personalize your experience. This information improves the device's ability to correctly recognize your inputs, such as pronunciation and handwriting. You can enable or disable the speech recognition, inking, and typing settings (called Get to Know You) in Settings.
We also collect your typed and handwritten words to improve character recognition and provide you with a custom user dictionary and suggestions for completing the text. Some of this data is stored on your device and others are sent to Microsoft to help improve these services. You can enable or disable the Send information to Microsoft about typing mode option in Settings.
