Correcting Punctuation

  • When you select a phrase (more than one word) that has punctuation, be sure to dictate that punctuation. For example, say you initially dictated, "Today is Thursday I have a meeting at 11 o'clock" and the text was transcribed as "Today is Thursday, I have a meeting at 11 o'clock." If you want to change the comma to a period, say "Select Thursday comma." If the correct punctuation appears in the Correction menu, select it. Otherwise, you can dictate over the selection by, for example, saying "Thursday period."
  • When you select punctuation, the Correction menu might list alternate punctuation (see example to the right)
  • If Natural Punctuation is turned on, when you select a phrase that Dragon has added punctuation to, the choices will include punctuation changes (see example here).
NOTE: When you select a word that has adjacent punctuation the Natural Punctuation feature added, the selection will extend to include that punctuation.
