I'm dictating program code and need exact control of lines and  
spacing. If I want one return I say "New Line", if I want two I say  
"New Paragraph". The other difference is that New Paragraph  
capitializes the next word and New Line does not. If I want something  
that iListen doesn't normally do (such as one return, capitalize the  
next word), I make my own command and add it to the Dictation Text  
Macros vocabulary.

While iListen isn't the best in every area, I've never found it  
lacking in flexibility.
