Custom voice commands lets you map a phrase to another phrase or command.
You can use custom voice commands to:
1) Correct common dictation errors,
For example, one user reported that due to her accent, when she says "new line" to insert a new line, it always gets dictated as "Uline". She can correct this error by adding a voice command mapping.
So next time she says "new line", it will actually trigger the new line voice command.
Two other common use cases:
- You can also use it enable adult language words without the censorship asterixis
- If you want words dictated in British english instead of American English
2) Simplify common tasks
For example, a salesperson would add a voice command
|thank you message||Thank you for purchasing from XYZ Store.
A doctor who is doing a general checkup of a patient would add
This saves time with having to copy paste this block of text before every consultation.
