Let the Fn Fn begin!
To start dictating, put the cursor in a text box on any programme and hit “fn fn”. You need to be in a quiet place with the microphone and speaker on.
- It takes a moment to get ready. Say an intro sentence to get it warmed up. When it starts typing, it is ready.
- Say “stop dictation” to end.
*On older Macs, these settings are in System Preferences --> Dictation & Speech
