I was using SwiftKey prior to this but I switched over to Gboard because it has better voice recognition when using speech to text. Something got changed in SwiftKey recently and the quality of speech-to-text went down significantly. But with SwiftKey I was able to correct words that I dictated and I thought that that improved the speech-to-text algorithms.

With Gboard there's no option to correct a word so I can't improve the speech to text recognition. Does this option exist and I can't find it?

With Gboard, there's indeed currently no option to correct a word so that you can improve the speech to text recognition.

The closest option is to add some entry in the Gboard personal dictionary (screenshots from Androidd 12 + Pixel 6), thanks user1874594 for showing me this trick:

Then you'll see the fixed word as a suggestion (only after the voice typing stopped being active):
