Built-in Commands

Vocola provides built-in voice commands for Vocola-related tasks in several categories:

Access User Interface -Control the Vocola user interface.
Open Command Files -Open files containing your commands or sample commands.
Insert Keystrokes -Insert keystrokes in the proper syntax when writing voice commands.
Modify Dictation -Modify a dictated phrase.

Or see the Cheat Sheet for a summary.

Also, many useful commands are not built-in but are available as Sample Commands.

In the command tables, words in square brackets are optional. For example, "Open Global [Commands]" means you can say either "Open Global Commands" or "Open Global".

All built-in commands are enabled by default. See below if you need to disable or modify them, or view their definitions.
