Open the segment as you would normally with Wordfast.

Make sure the cursor is at the start of the target segment (see previous discussions).

Start talking.

When you've finished the segment, do the Alt arrows thing to move to the next one.

puts what you dictate in weird places. I found that doing a search (control F in Word) with nonsense in the search field (I often put in something like hfsdhjjk) miraculously solves this problem.
