Basic Principles 

1. Speak at a normal conversational speed and volume. The rhythm stress and intonation of speech are all key to accuracy.
2. Pause before and after commands, ensure that they are not apart of the sentence.
3. Avoid having background noise while dictating as this can be picked up.
