General explanation for working with the editor
One recommended scenario for working with the Editor is done through the following steps:
First you should type the necessary content using either virtual or physical keyboard or using voice recognition.
Then you should hear the whole document (with speech engine). Thus, you may hear weather there were any mistakes in typing.
If there were any mistakes you should go back, word by word until you reach the word with the mistake.
When you get to the mistaken word you should activate the spell function to hear the word letter by letter and then "select" the word.
All these actions can be done either by buttons, gestures or accelerator keys and are explained in the help that comes with the Application.
When the word is selected, you should write the word again correctly. The new word will replace the old mistaken one.
You should repeat these actions until the document has no mistakes and can be exported to the application you want like email or SMS.
