T his is very interesting software i have never heard of such software before. I think this software make the work more easier, as sometimes we forget to write what we say. I m sure this really is going to work. Thanks for sharing it.

Dragon does all of that. It takes a little getting used to but once you are comfortable with the speaking style, you will not notice it. for periods and paragraphs, you just speak it out. So if you are at the end of a sentence, you just say period and it will place one there.

Is this for real...?

Dragon Naturally Speaking 11 is an incredibly power piece of software.

You can do periods by saying the word "period". You could say "new paragraph" to skip a line as well. There's also a command for "natural punctuation" which attempts to insert both commands and periods for you.

Good post im into using this software as it really helps me with my college homework and papers. Much more efficient than just normal typing.

Can you use voices other than your own?
In a classroom environment could you specify which voice is being typed?
(for the deaf)

Anya

not sure if anybody will know the answer to this but i'm a student and i record the lectures for my course, now i know dragon only works with the voice it 'knows' but if you give it recordings of voices it hasn't been train up to understand (i.e. lots of different university lectures) will it work badly or just not work at all? i really don't care if i have to go though the whole thing correcting errors it would still save quite a lot of time when taking notes which i then study from months later

Can it heap the hearing impaired. I have I terrible time on the phone and in meetings

Chrissy C

I have wondered if it actually works. Thanks for sharing your experience.

A solution for students or professionals who have issues with external noise would be to listen to the audio and read back the lecture to Dragon. Dragon won't work well transcribing the recorded lecture for a few reasons - one, as pointed out above, Dragon is a one voice to one profile solution. Another reason is the recording would not be optimized for Dragon (external noise, etc)
