How to change spelling of a word

Q: Please help! It doesn't spell my name correctly!!

I am a SpeakingEmail client. I love the app. But each time I finish my email and say my name, the default spelling used by the app is "Geoff". But my name is "Jeff". I know that there is a disclaimer at the bottom of the email saying that it is a dictated email but I have a good friend whose name is also "Jeff". It spells his name as "Geoff". Well, it's embarrassing. Is there some way I can make a preference that will always spell my name correctly?


Hi Jeff, there are a couple of solutions I can suggest:

1. Set up the email signature and include your name in that instead of dictating your name at the end of the message

2. When dictating a message to the other Jeff, tap the screen and say "replace". This will let you change a word, giving you a list of the alternatives for that word. 

What is Speaking Email?

An app for iPhone and Android that reads your email out loud to you. It intelligently extracts content from emails (minus the signatures, disclaimers and threads). And it lets you action your email - archive, mark-as-read, trash, flag, reply, or forward. It can be completely by voice command, or use the large on-screen buttons or full screen touch gestures.

Who is it for?

People with blindness or visual impairment. People who are busy and run out of time to get through their inbox. People who want to make productive use of time when driving between appointments.
