Do I have to train Dictate to recognize my voice?


There is no need to train Dictate! You do not need to practice saying phrases, for instance, for it to recognize your voice. However, there are some general tips for helping Dictate hear you best:

  • Speak clearly and pronounce words as precisely as you can - this helps Dictate decide which words to record.
  • If possible, find a quiet place to use Dictate - this will help prevent extra words getting added in.

The more practice you get with Dictate, the more comfortable you will feel with it.
