about the complete sentence before you start. You’ll get much better
results. Not only will you speak more clearly, but LilySpeech will
better understand the context of what you’re saying.

4. Make use of custom words!!
There are going to be things LilySpeech spells wrong… people’s names
with unusual spellings for instance… or it just doesn’t recognize
because it’s something specific to your life, such as a business name.
Use custom words to correct this issue. The more you personalize with
custom words, the better LilySpeech works!

If you’re dictating something longer, don’t feel you need to dictate
the whole thing in one go. It’s too much pressure! Dictate one or

This gives you a chance to edit as you go and gather your thoughts for
the next bit.
