25 Beginner Dictation

25.1 How to use this section

This section contains short texts to be dictated for practice. The texts are organized by Flesch–Kincaid readability. They do not strictly follow the order which concepts are introduced in the theory. However, theory sections may have links to these texts at the end.

The text in this section have a Flesch-Kincaid readability > 115, meaning very simple texts.

25.1.1 Layout

The layout has been designed for the user to easily review and practice the selected words used in dictation before listening and writing to dictation. The selected words for each text include both briefs and difficult/new words such as names and homonyms. The stroke shown is usually the brief or shortest stroke, not always the only way to write the word(s) and alternative strokes can be looked up with the Plover dictionary.

To encourage dictation practice, the actual text is hidden at the start, while selected words and their strokes are shown by default. Both sections are collapsible.

25.1.2 Phrasing

Phrases are underlined in the text itself, and the longest phrases precedence. For example, the sentence “You will be a cat” contains two phrases, “you will,” and “will be.” Because “you will” is longer than “will be,” “you will” is underlined rather than “will be.” The longest phrase is underlined. Both phrases will appear in the “selected words” section. It is possible to write without using any of the phrases if desired, though phrasing will increase speed.

25.1.3 Controls

The “play” button will activate dictation synthesis on the website. The “check” button will compare user input with the original text. One thing of note is the text may be multiple paragraphs, something which is not indicated in the synthesized speech at the moment. The “visibility” button will hide the snippet if the “Hide Snippets” checkbox is checked in the controls. To un-hide all snippets, uncheck the “Hide Snippets” box.

I can smelt rose though I have a cold. If I did not have a nose, I could not.

I have a sore toe; I cut it on the hoe. Oh! It hurts me so.

My coat is old; I wore it till I tore it. I have worn it until it is full of holes and cannot be mended.

Let us go home. Hold on to my hand.

Look at these ducks.

They have short legs and flat feet. See that little one.

Ducks cannot walk fast, but they can swim well.

Did you ever see a duck swim?

Yes; and the young ducks can swim as well as old ones. Boys have to learn to swim.

How does the old duck call her young ones to her?

She says, quack, quack, quack.

Then the young ducks come to her as fast as they can.

Come, Fan! Come, boys! The sun is up. Fan, you were to set the hen on the ten eggs in the pen. Run and do it. Dan, you may cut the ham, and Fan will put it in a tin box with a pot of jam. She will put some buns in the tin can for us. Then, Dan, you may see that the dogs are fed. What a din they keep up till they are fed! Let the man put the nag to the cart, and you, Ben, run and get my gun. It is in the bin in the barn. If we go by the fen, we can see the den of the fox, and it may be, I can get a shot at him, if I have my gun. Here is Fan! Get your hat, my dear, and pin it on, or the sun may tan you. It is hot today. Do not forget the box and the can, boys, into the cart, my girl! Up, boys up! What a gay day we are to have!

Dick is the son of a poor hack-man. One day he got a kick on the leg from the old nag that goes with the hack. The nag did not mean to kick Dick, but yet she hurt his leg, and he got sick and so has not been out for a long time. Poor sick Dick! He does not have much fun. He has a pet duck, but when he has fed it, it goes off to its pool in the yard.

Once he had a dog, Jack, that was fond of him, and that used to lick his hand, when Dick went to pet him. But, one day when a pack of dogs went by, Jack ran off with them, and Dick saw him no more.

Once, too, Dick had a cat. Her name was Puss. He used to deck her neck with bits of silk. But Puss went off in the hack one day and got lost. Dick has had poor luck with his pets.

Now and then Dick sits on a rock that is in the yard, and looks at the old nag, as she eats her half-peck of oats, at noon, or pats her neck, as she picks her hay from the rack.

Poor boy! Do you not wish he were well?

I have a pet;

I call her Kit;

And by the fire

She likes to sit.

Each day I bring

A dish of milk

And smooth her fur

That shines like silk.

And on my knee

She likes to sit, for Kit loves me,

And I love Kit.
