How do I add Common Words?

Common words are words that occur frequently in your calls but might not appear commonly in ordinary conversation. Because these words and phrases don't appear often in ordinary conversation, the transcription engine will mistake them for more common utterances. You can help the transcription engine by providing your common words to it.
Common Words is a feature offered for Cresta Voice only.
