Dragon NaturallySpeaking is a popular voice recognition software system. When the user talks, it types, allowing them to use their voice to create and edit documents or emails, launch applications, open files, control the mouse, search the internet and more. The program helps individuals with learning disabilities, dyslexia, dyspraxia, mobility or dexterity impairments and a variety of physical disabilities access a computer by dictation, using their voice. Dragon NaturallySpeaking opens up access to the computer world for individuals who are unable to use a traditional keyboard.
In this three hour workshop, Dragon NaturallySpeaking will be demonstrated and voice files will be created for each participant. Attendees will practice dictating and correcting misrecognition errors. The basic commands used to create/edit dictation will be taught. Formatting commands such as “bold that”, “underline that”, “print that”, “save document”, and many more will be covered and used. Options on the Dragon Bar, how to best use the Side Bar and voice control of mouse movements will also be taught. Those who are interested in learning more about Dragon NaturallySpeaking capabilities and mastering the basic operation of this software are encouraged to attend.
