Tips & Tricks: Voice Dictation

Did you know that you can use Dictation to talk to your iPhone or iPad instead of typing? You can dictate text almost anytime your keyboard is on screen to quickly record a patient’s comments in the free text section of a question. To use voice dictation on your device, follow the two simple steps below!

Step 1: Tap the microphone button on the on-screen keyboard.

Step 2: The device will listen to your voice and turn it into text as you talk. Tap the Done button to stop dictating, and make adjustments as needed with the on-screen keyboard.

You can go one step further with patients that are curious about the CipherRounds app by enabling Dictation and letting them record a few comments themselves!
