How to type phrase starting with "-" to match computer's answer?

Not really a French question, but how do you type a dash to get a "your answer matched mine" in the writing exercises? Even if I write exactly the same as the model answer, if the phrase begins with a dash the computer doesn't credit me with getting it right. Is it something to do with the number of spaces before or after? Or is there a type of dash I'm not using? 

Frustrating as I challenge myself to get 3 or 4 "matches" per exercise, but this means half of my attempts have no chance....

Wow you're quite strict on yourself to want to have a character by character match. You realize, of course, that nobody except yourself is keeping track of this... :)
