Numbered Lists


To dictate numbered lists, use the command ‘number one’ then ‘number two’ etc for subsequent items.


For example, saying:


“diagnoses number one hypertension number two glaucoma number three diabetes new paragraph thankyou for referring this 47 year old gentleman”


Will be displayed as:



  1. Hypertension
  2. Glaucoma
  3. Diabetes


Thank you for referring this 47 year old gentleman


You can also instead dictate subsequent items using the command ‘next number’ e.g.


“diagnoses number one hypertension next number glaucoma next number diabetes“
