How to get the most out of Dictations
Before you Begin
Please take note of the following points. They are extremely (!) important:
- LESS IS MORE
In the beginning (!) only work with the very first 2–3 sentences of the audio provided.
- KEEP IT SHORT
Pause the audio after 2 to 5 words and THEN write down what you have heard from memory. Try to increase the amount of words over time.
- NEVER MIND THE GAP
Never rewind the audio. If you can't understand a word just leave a gap.
- NO MULTITASKING
Do not write while you are listening. Always listen, pause then write down.
- LIMITED MISTAKES ONLY
If you make more than 15 mistakes, write fewer sentences.
Don't worry too much about remembering these points. I'll remind you again and again.
Now get a piece of paper ready or open your word processor and click on COMPLETE&CONTINUE to write your first dictation.
