Ease of Use

Dragon products are amazing, this is not my first. The new Version #12 is the best yet, making it super easy to dictate. My only suggestions to buyers is not to purchase an additional headset, the program comes with one. the Headset that came with the package is also of excellent quality. I would suggest it to anyone!

Voice Command Not Launching MS Word or Outlook

on 8/3/2013

Here is the skinny: 1. Dragon does a fantastic job with taking dictation, as it is as accurate as others have said. 2. Dragon does not handle voice commands well at all. In fact, I find the Windows 8 free voice recognition software that is built into Windows 8 does a better job and implementing the commands. 3. Creating commands in this version of Dragon is very difficult and unclear. It seems that if you plan to create your own commands, you probably want the version that records macros for you, which this version does not do. 4. Tech support did respond to my issue about fixing the error message with launching MS Word on Command, but the result was creating more error messages and disabling the dictation function in MS Word completely. As a result, I had to undo all Tech supports suggestions and live with a product that does not open some MS Office programs. Bottom line: The product is accurate and useful with dictation, but I must use Windows 8 voice recognition if I want to open or close programs and navigate the computer. So I use both programs according to their strengths, and keep hoping the company will fix dragon so it works as advertised.

  • You can even personalize Dragon with your own custom vocabulary of acronyms, proper names and other unique phrases that you frequently use.
  • Dragon can even adapt its format rules by detecting your format corrections – abbreviations, numbers, and more — so your dictated text looks the way you want it to every time.

  • Thanks to the new interactive tutorial’s simulations, you can learn and practice good dictation, correction and editing habits so that you can create text efficiently within just a few minutes.
  • The Dragon Help system contains a Tip of the Day window and other easy ways for you to quickly learn what interests you.
  • The Dragon Sidebar puts important voice commands and tips in one convenient desktop location.

  • Open applications or folders, select menu items, click or move the mouse, press keys, switch from one window to another and more using simple voice commands.
  • Use the free Dragon Remote Mic app and use your Apple® iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® touch (4th gen) or your Android device as a wireless microphone over Wi-Fi for optimal convenience. Wideband Bluetooth support delivers outstanding wireless performance with no training required.

  • Dragon Voice Shortcuts™ collapse common multi-step tasks into direct voice commands you can use at any time, no matter which applications are currently active. For example, say: “Send email to John Smith and Raphael Sanchez” or “Search maps for financial advisors in Boston, Massachusetts” or “search Google for 87 divided by 12” and Dragon makes it happen. You can also say “open top site for Facebook” and Dragon automatically opens the top-ranked page for these keywords.
