Voice commands let you improve your productivity during dictation. They are useful for avoiding repetitive text entry, common actions like punctuation, and for correcting dictation errors. You can speak in the phrase and the associated snippet/command gets inserted.
For example, to insert full stop: say "full stop" and a "." will be inserted.
Some useful voice commands:
Dictanote comes built-in with voice commands for common tasks like punctuation. Voice commands are available in 21 languages. Check out the full list of built-in voice commands.
There are a number of special action commands. Below is a list of action commands:
|<enter>||Simulate hitting enter|
|<copysel>||Copy selection to clipboard|
|<cutsel>||Cut selection to clipboard|
|<copynote>||Copy note to clipboard|
|<cutnote>||Cut note to clipboard|
You can map any phrase to these commands, for example, you can map "next line" => "<newline>". Most of these actions are available in English by default. For other languages, you need to use custom voice commands to manually define them.
You can define your own voice commands. Click on the >_ button in the toolbar to the left to open the Voice Commands panel.
Voice Commands Modal
If you are Pro Member, you can define your own voice command by putting in the word you want to use as command into "Text" and the desired output into "Value". For example, say you want to insert ":-)" every time you say "smiley face", you would do the following:
After you click "Add new row", your command is registered. Now when you dictate, "smiley face" automatically gets replaced with ":-)".
Dictanote also handles automatic capitalization. For example, when you "period now I want smiley", Dictanote will convert it to ". now I want :-)"
More voice commands for creating list, bold, etc are coming soon.

would you mind posting a screenshot of where the toolbar is located?
First, congrats for this extension. Does it have Portuguese pre-installed voice commands or do I have to create each one of them, for instance (coma = vírgula, etc.)?
I also have tried to use English voice commands amidst dictation in Portuguese and it didn't work.
Podia ter letra maiúscula depois do ponto. Tem como fazer?
Many of the popular ones like comma should be included, we are working on adding predefined language voice commands.
Capitalization works. For example: saying "i want to test full stop lets see if this gets capitalized" comes out as "I want to test. Let's see if this gets capitalized"
Unable to find the >_ button on the toolbar for setting extra voice commands...and must I toggle the 'mic' on and off between speaking? I thought there was an extra button to do that...?
Como faço para anexar o audio ou video que tenho guardado no ambiente de trabalho, por exemplo?
When I use open/close parentheses, a space is added between the word(s) and the parenthesis signs.
Double punctuation characters should not necessarily be separated by a space. Can this be user-defined?
There are a couple things I wonder about: first, how can i make sure the sentence will start with a capitalized word or what command do I need know to enable this? (it doesn't always do this). next, why is that when i am dictating, some words in the middle of the sentence get capitalized? (is this related to my voice inflection or loudness of my voice when speaking?) Lastly, I find that when I end a sentence or just pause after leaving a period or comma and am gathering my thoughts before continuing, the cursor will move to the left of the last punctuation mark instead of staying on the end (after the comma or period)...?

The word <undo> just enters what looks like coding but doesn't actually <undo> anything.
peut-on corriger des erreurs de reconnaissance pour qu'elles ne se reproduisent pas
(can we correct recognition errors so that they do not recur)
There is a bug with the Hungarian version, not really of bug, it's because of the language. I am talking about brackets and braces, we call them Square brackets and Buckle brackets.
szögletes zárójel [ = Square bracket
szögletes zárójel bezár ] = Square bracket close - Hungarian literal translation for the Close square bracket command (and, it will indeed close a parenthesis (the simple, round bracket) , because it hears the command zárójel bezár )
I am sure it will be a very nice fix for the Hungarian programmers, the lazy type :)
Love it it works better than almost any of the other apps out there like it actually hears what you're saying
