Software to type for you!

Dragon Naturally Speaking, the World’s leading speech-to-text dictation software recommended by health and legal professionals. When RSI is severely limiting your ability to use a computer normally Dragon can help you continue working.

We have used Dragon from version 8 onwards and recommend it for accurate speech to commands/text and text to audio. The latest version is 13 and is amazingly accurate as long as you follow the instructions when setting it up in the first place. Dragon 13 now also supports microphones built into many of the latest laptops for optimal flexibility and convenience.

Dragon’s feature-list

Create documents, reports and emails three times faster than most people type. Up to 99% accuracy – correct any recognition errors and the software updates your profile to enable better recognition accuracy.

Dictate directly into most Microsoft Office applications. Corel WordPerfect, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and AOL also supported. Navigate the desktop by voice: launch or switch applications, save or print documents all by voice. Add Custom Words and Voice Commands such as insert signature, and pre-set text and images will automatically appear in email and documents.

Easy Correction and Proofing. Users can listen back to their dictation.

NEW Quick Voice Formatting to make editing and formatting text faster than ever.

NEW Dragon Voice Shortcuts for Web Search make searching for information on the Web faster and easier. Just say Search maps for Italian restaurants in London, England, and Dragon will enter the term in the search field and return the results.

NEW Dragon Voice Shortcuts for Desktop Search allows users to quickly locate information on the PC.

Be Productive on the Go. Dictate into any Nuance-certified digital recorder for automatic transcription when it’s synched with a PC.

Are there any alternatives?

The best answer is “it depends how much typing or reading text you do!”. Dragon NaturallySpeaking is currently the market leader and with good reason. If you’re not a full time computer user and affordability is an issue a cheaper alternative, if you’re on Windows-7, 8 or 10, might be Windows built-in speech recognition.

It is sufficient to be able to dictate speech to text but it is more limited in both its options and customisation ability for the individual and it doesn’t read text back to you.

If you want the computer to read text back to you you can try SpeakComputer which is freeware.

These options are better than nothing but don’t currently represent complete control as Dragon does.
