You can dictate most common fractions the way you would normally say them. To dictate 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/7, 1/8, 1/9, 1/10, and 1/16 or a multiple of these fractions, just say the fraction normally.
|1/4||one fourth or one quarter|
|15/16||fifteen sixteenths or fifteen over sixteen|
|3 7/8||three and seven eighths or three and seven over eight|
If the denominator (bottom number in the fraction) is greater than 10, you can enter the fraction by saying "slash" or "over" between the two numbers.
|9/12||nine [slash] twelve or nine over twelve|
|5 3/56||five [space bar] three [slash] fifty six|
|130/70||one thirty over seventy|
A few common fractions can also be displayed on your computer as special characters (such as 1/4, 1/2, or 3/4) instead of two numbers separated by a slash character (such as 1/4, 1/2, or 3/4). For information about dictating fraction characters, see Dictating uncommon special characters on page 115.
