Hi. Is it possible to train it to understand a word and spell it correctly? Specifically, it's some names that I have to skip and write each time because it comes up with very odd input.

Hi John,

The main way to solve this is to use Custom Voice Commands

Lets say you want to dictate the following uncommon words: Humira, osteoporosis, Ozempic
(these are medical terms)

Some words Voice In recognizes out of the box like osteoporosis

Some words, you can add a voice command to map mispronounced word to correct word
For example, for Humira
add humida => Humira

For some words, like Ozempic which gets dictated as olympic, you may need to map to a phrase. For example
insert weight loss drug => Ozempic
insert medicine 1 => Ozempic
