Susan here with a back-to-school giveaway that will get you talking. Literally. This giveaway is brought to you by Nuance and their Dragon speech recognition software.
I’m not typing this blog post. I’m dictating it. Yes, I’m sitting here talking at my computer. My hands are enjoying the break.
I’m using Nuance Dragon Dictate for Mac and it’s surprisingly easy. Of course I’m still getting the hang of it and I’ll get faster as I get used to letting my voice do my typing.
Dragon is shockingly accurate. I spent a few minutes doing the voice training to teach the software my voice and now it does a great job translating my spoken words into text. The simple tutorials taught me the basics I needed to know including how to go back and edit what I have “written”.
I thought the punctuation would be really difficult, but it’s simple.
The fact is we can speak much faster than we can type – even for those who are fast typists. So many people use Dragon speech recognition software to improve their productivity. Of course many people who have issues with typing for instance carpal because of tunnel syndrome, use Dragon to enable them to do work the otherwise couldn’t do.
Another fabulous use of Dragon speech recognition software is for people with dyslexia and learning disabilities. The case studies and examples of kids finding success with Dragon are so inspiring.
Watch the short video below to see how easy to use and accurate Dragon is…
I never thought I’d be able to “write” this blog post on my very first time using Dragon speech recognition software. But I am and it’s incredibly quick.
There are a few different versions of Dragon speech recognition software by Nuance available. Check out their website to find which is the right match for you. There are versions for Windows and for Mac.
