Create Dictations Now Dictation also available for your favorite device with HTML5 This activity is a dictation, therefore it consists in writing exactly the text that we are given. It is important, while you are dictating, to give details of the punctuation marks (like comas, full stops, question marks, etc.) so that the correction can be exact and also to avoid any kind of misunderstandings. When we define the dictation, we introduce the title and configure some correction options: Sensitive at capital letters.Sensitive at accents.Sensitive at skips of the line.Number of attempts. Once these parameters are configured, you have to write the sentences of the new dictation correctly. Finally, the written sentences are recorded, sentence by sentence, so that each of them can be repeated if necessary. Do you like "Dictation" activities?
