3. Dictate Clearly
Dictate, speaking clearly and naturally. Don’t expect Perfection your first little while. There is a learning curve and you can learn more about getting the absolute best recognition possible here.
4. Click The Transfer Button
When you’re happy click the Transfer button when it’s stopped spinning (processing).
The text will transfer back into your email where you can then edit.

Don’t feel pressured to dictate long emails or documents in one go. Do a few sentences or a paragraph at a time. This gives you a chance to gather your thoughts and edit what you dictated.
