If the program does not recognize some words or letters, you can use longer words or multiple words. For words that are not heard properly you can add an extra word, for example "copy this" instead of "copy" and "paste this" instead of "paste". For spelling you can make a spelling alphabet yourself. For example "Alfa" for the letter "A" and Bravo for the letter "B". Don't forget that you should also say "control alfa" instead of "control A".
