    I have an iPad 3 (or whatever it is labeled) and just want to learn more about it. My latest discovery is dictation; I am finding it is most helpful in many ways. Starting from this point forward, I am attempting to do a little dictation from my iMac rather than the iPad. My latest project in using the iPad was to dictate all the spices in my wife's cupboard. I dictated to notes on the notes app in the iPad, then emailed the notes to myself. Upon receiving the email on my iMac, I saved the email to a document and then was able to put it into my pages app. From there I put it into a chart and sorted all of the spices alphabetically. My problem with all of this is that I can not tell you how I accomplished it, it is all trial and error and seems to come out okay in the end. I find that it is quite easy to correct any errors in my dictation. I manually erase and redictate any portion of a sentence that I'm not satisfied with.

    My interest in being a member of this form is to learn from what others have written. This is my first ever forum, but look forward to using it.

    Welcome to the forum.

    It sounds like you've got a pretty good handle on dictation. There is a Dictation Tips and Tricks thread that might add a bit more. If you see anything missing, please let us know.
