Checking dictated messages before sending

Forum
watchOS & Apple Watch Apps

Hey everyone, wondering if any Apple Watch users can help me out.

I've used the dictation feature to send messages and, generally, it works well. However, I can't seem to find a way of checking the dictated text before I send it, using Voice Over.

When composing a message, I double-tap the "Dictate" button, wait for the taptic feedback and start dictating. After I've finished speaking, I attempt to have Voice Over read back the text, using the left and right one-finger swipe. However, all I hear are the Voice Over clicks. Double-tapping just sends the message, without offering me the chance to check it first. The only exception is in the case of an iMessage, where I can select to send as audio or text.

Has anyone found a workaround or solution for this?

Cheers.
