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.

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.
